Notes

An earthwork enclosure and field system lying on the northern slope of Cheverton Down immediately south of Fern Bottom. The rectangular earthwork enclosure, the longer sides of which are aligned NNW-SSE, lies within the eastern part of an extensive field system. The lower part of the field system is defined by a substantial lynchet which, within the area of the monument, is associated with additional cross slope lynchets and downslope banks. These, together with some substantial but more dispersed sections of bank, define an extensive area of enclosure for cultivation. The lower lynchet extends beyond the eastern and western limits of the monument but, in these areas it is unassociated with any further recorded elements of field system and is not included within the scheduling. Scheduled.
