The Chesters was once a significant fort, but has been much reduced by ploughing.
Occupying a position on a raised ridge, this fort is circular in shape with a diameter of around 107m. It is surrounded by two ramparts with ditches.
In the first quarter of the 20th century the inner rampart stood 2.1m tall spread over a width of 18.3m, while the outer rampart was 1.5m tall spread over a width of 13.7m.
The ramparts have now been reduced considerably by ploughing.
