Iron age fort,again nothing much to look at but we had to get permission and an escort to this sit as it was on private land.We later learned that a student from chester university had done a lot of research on this site and Drfrick is in the process of gaining the info from the said student.The fort is under the mound of soil.

Excellent tour Fricky and Dava, here are a couple of pictures of the mill just to show what may be under the ivy (I don't think the date of the second one is right)

Fascinating - never really been to Burton.

Seeing the well reminds me how intriguing it is to see wells marked on old maps, wondering if they are still there. Also where they mark 'Stone' on map I always wonder if its a boundary stone, a mile stone or something else.

Would be good to hunt these features down one day.

I dont think the fort is under the mound mate. According to that map we looked at the mound is part of a wall that encircled the top of the hill. The top of the hill was pretty flat and would have had iron age round houses within it. There was also the remains of a small gate (no longer visible). The fort was protected on one side by the River Dee and below would have been a natural harbour. Still trying to get hold of the fella from Chester Uni but my fingers dont work due to teh frost bite.
