The wall around the SW part of the fort is somewhat overgrown, but the base of the early defensive wall would appear to be surmounted by a modern field wall. The E side of the fort is very overgrown, but the OS map shows a simple field wall on the line of the defences. The dense growth of blackthorn prevented a closer examination.
The NE side of the fort has been partly quarried away to serve a lime-kiln which is situated on the slopes below.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement and society . The hillfort is an important relic of a prehistoric landscape.
