- Description: Dry Hill Camp, Lingfield, is a large Iron Age Wealden type hillfort of some 24 acres and about 550ft altitude. The defences still consist to a large extent of three banks and ditches, two banks and ditches having been ploughed out on the north and north-west. Excavations by Winbolt and Margary in 1932 yielded little apart from flint flakes and iron slag, no pottery or iron implements were found. There is definite evidence of pre-Roman iron smelting, although no hearth was discovered.
