Google Earth Plug-in: Helsbury Castle near Michaelstow

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The place name is a reference to Helsbury Castle, an Iron Age hillfort comprising a single bank and external ditch enclosing an area about 140 metres in diameter. In places the inner face of the bank is visible and this shows that the rampart was built of dry stone walling. An annexe provides an additional enclosed area on the north-east – this may have been to provide defensive outworks to the entrance to the hillfort, or to provide an extra enclosed area for domestic or agricultural activity.
