Sites and Monument Record: Myot Hill Hillfort (SMR 391)
Hill Fort situated on the crown of Myot Hill, oval on plan, being some 66 m E to W by 43 m transversely. Remains virtually obliterated by stone robbing and weathering. 2 mutilated ramparts protect the E approaches, where there is a gentle slope to the plain below. Inner rampart is low and slightly curved, and has spread to a maximum width of 4 m. Its course runs S from the crest of the N slope for 32 m, breaks for 3.4 m then resumes as a low scarp for 7.7 m before merging into the crest of the S slope. The outer mound follows a similar course. This mound, existing only as a scarp now, begins on the N slope 11.6 m from the inner, follows the course of the inner mound to the entrance-way gap, breaks for 6.7 m then resumes as a slight terrace running SW and W for 13 m before blending into the S slope. Interior is featureless, except for a modern building within the fort itself.
