Beacon Hill Iron Age hill-fort, apparently occupied for only a short time around 600 BC. Ordnance Survey grid reference SP 960169, situated on The Ridgeway / Icknield Way. On the (un-named) hill immediately to the south of Beacon Hill is a much older (probably Bronze Age) burial mound, and there are two more on Beacon Hill itself, with another on Gallows Hill, at the end of a ridge leading eastwards from the summit of Beacon Hill.
(You can see the various features described above on the Ordnance Survey map of the area.)
