This site was probably originally a prehistoric earthwork, which subsequently was modified and used by an Early Christian monastic community. It sits on the prow of a gravel ridge with a commanding view of the Camowen valley. When it was excavated in the mid-1980s more than 500 graves were found, as well as the foundation trench for a rectangular timber building, probably a church. Evidence was also found for glass making and iron-smelting. (Accessible with due care and permission from the landowner)
