Castle Hill Hillfort, Newhaven, West Sussex
Castle Hill Hillfort
Castle Hill hillfort is a univallate Iron Age enclosure of indeterminate size – unfortunately due to erosion and later constructions, this fort has largely disappeared. In 1869 Lane-Fox (later Pitt-Rivers) reported that:
“The Castle, Newhaven – about 1680 yards of the northern front still remain and it appears to be arranged in a succession of re-entering curves and salient points – enough however remains to show that this work occupied the whole summit of the hill and conformed to the outline of the brow”.(1)
Castle Hill hillfort is Intervisible with Belle Tout hillfort, and Seaford Head hillfort.
