Hillfort in Hampshire.

The defences of this early Iron Age hillfort consist of two banks with a ditch imbetween, and an original entrance to the northeast. There is evidence that the defences were periodically improved as times of war and peace came and went. The hillfort was left deserted after it was sacked in the first century BC.

The Miz Maze lies within the hillfort, close to the original entrance through the ramparts. St. Catherines Chapel stood in the middle of the clump of beech trees on the summit (no remains).
