aerial photograph of Billings Ring univallate hillfort near Eyton in Lydbury North, Shropshire England UK. Built in the Iron Age this hill fort has been a protected ancient monument since 1936. At 155m x 225m its quite large in size and consists of an earth backed stone rampart surrounded by a 6m wide ditch. Unfortunately the interior of the fort has been ploughed in the 20th century disturbing much of the archaeology, although the ploughing has thrown up some Roman artifacts indicating the site was occupied into the Roman period.
