Originator:Baring Gould, S.
Summary:Fort, an inner stronghold surrounded by a small bank above an escarpment and a fosse 5m deep and 9m wide. Counterscarp surmounted by bank 1m high beyond which is a level area with another bank and fosse 1.8m deep. The banks are formed with earth and shale. At the extreme SW is a causeway across an inner ditch, the width being an estimated 8m. The ditch and bank are not visible where the hill slopes steeply towards the river Tamar, but on the road to Boyton, not far off, descends a steep hill called Pickleberry Hill which is suggested as the name which the camp was called.
