Notes

The earthworks and buried remains of Whitber Romano-British farmstead which is located over an exposed shelf of limestone on gently sloping ground 660 metres south west of Highmore Hill. It includes a cluster of five iregularly shaped enclosures, two of which contain traces of hut circles, while the remaining enclosures would have functioned as stock pens. A narrow entrance on the monument's eastern side leads to an oval-shaped enclosure within which are traces of a small hut circle approximately 2.5 metres in diameter. There is another slightly larger hut circle situated in the south western corner of the irregularly-shaped enclosure to the west. Scheduled.
