DUNDON HILL

Earthwork remains of an Iron Age univallate hillfort on the Somerset Levels circa 5 hectares in internal area. The rampart varies in height between 0.5 and 2.5 metres and the defensive circuit is incomplete in some places. On the south east corner of the fort is a mound known as Dundon Beacon with a lynchet running from it. This has been interpreted as a Bronze Age bowl barrow, later adapted as a Norman motte (please see ST 43 SE 9 for further details). A spring on the hill is believed to have been regarded asa holy well in the Medieval period. Scheduled.
