Tractor Ruts on Midsummer Hill Hillfort

Tractor ruts on Midsummer Hill Hillfort at the point where the track from the eastern section of the hillfort crosses a stream.

 

The source of the stream is a spring located just inside the southern gate which would've have provided a permanent water supply for the occupants.

 

Pieces of sandstone can be seen above the planks. The sandstone was imported from an outcrop of LLandovery sandstone in nearby Coombe Green and used to add a vertical face to the ramparts.
