Notes

Linear earthwork, comprising a ditch and adjacent bank and some 700 metres in length, forming part of a system of linear earthworks in the Wilsford Down area (see associated monument records). The whole system is assumed to be of later Bronze Age date, and incorporates the earlier North Kite enclosure (SU 14 SW 52). The earthwork was sectioned in 1982/3 as part of the Stonehenge Environs project. The ditch fill seems to represent an uninterrupted silting sequence, and no datable finds were recovered. The linear feature is visible as an earthwork and a cropmark on aerial photographs.
