Notes

A series of rectangular and oval enclosures on Horton Down are visible on air photographs as earthworks and cropmarks. These could be the remains of a prehistoric, Roman, Medieval or Post Medieval settlement. The oval enclosure, measures 60m by 40m. It is rectilinear with a convex west side. A possible internal feature was visible but it was very indistinct. A further five enclosures are attached to the north, west and south sides of this enclosure. These are all rectilinear and measure from 30m by 25m to 60m by 60m.
