The state of preservation appears very good and the general area was
peppered with the remains of other iron age settlements. When I checked
this out later and was then shown a photo of a cave entrance at another
ring fort nearby which has since been filled in, the stones at the entrance
appeared to have been worked and so my suggestion that it might possibly
be a souterrain was later confirmed by experts, also confirming that it was
previously undocumented.
