Warham, Warham Iron Age hill fort

NHER 1828 

Earthworks of Iron Age hillfort.

The earthworks of the Iron Age hillfort at Warham.

Impressive little fort on a slope above the River Stiffkey. The camp is a circular Iron Age earthwork with double banks and ditches. Unfortunately, the western end which contained the original entrance was destroyed when the river course was re-routed. The other entrances are all modern. The central area of the camp has never been excavated.
