Reynoldston Camp

Iron Age Hillfort

Reynoldston Camp is a site that contains the remains of a defended enclosure, likely dating back to the Iron Age period, around 800 BC to AD 74. It is located at an elevation of 100 meters above Ordnance Datum (OD) on gently sloping ground that falls towards the south. The enclosed area is approximately 0.2 hectares and is defined by a spread bank with an external ditch. The overall width of the defences is about 20 meters, with the bank rising 0.5 meters above the interior and 1.4 meters above the bottom of the ditch. There are remains of a damaged entrance on the south side, measuring about 5 meters wide. In 1833, pottery believed to be Roman was discovered in the ditch by S. Lewis.
