White Sheet Castle, Wiltshire

Hillfort, univallate on S & W, crowning steep escarpment. It is multivallate on N & E facing plateau with entrance gaps, perhaps not all original.

The hillfort occupies a superb strategic location. It is univallate on the west and south sides and ‘trivallate’ on the north and east . The site is thought to be of two main phases, initially consisting of a univallate enclosure bounded by the innermost rampart. The second phase construction of the middle and most easterly rampart, still with its original entrances. The large entrance from the north is undoubtedly more modern in origin.
