aerial photograph of Ladle Hill unfinished hillfort in Hampshire England UK. Although the fort has never been excavated, various studies including a Magnetometer survey have indicated that the fort was never finished and abandoned part way through its construction. So far no evidence of settlement has been found within the enclosure. The unfinished condition of the fort has provided an invaluable insight into how hill forts were constructed. Immediately adjacent the hill fort in the photographs is Lidle Hill Disc Barrow.
