Notes

A double-ditched concentric sub-rectangular defensive enclosure of Iron Age date is recorded as cropmarks on aerial photographs 340 metres south east of North Road Farm. The enclosure measures 300 metres long by 170 metres wide overall, and is defined by two ditches, 5m wide, set 16m apart. Excavations revealed the outer ditch as 'U' shaped and 2 metres deep, while the inner ditch was flat bottomed and about 1.8 metres in depth. Upcast from the ditches was used to construct substantial internal banks. These have since been reduced by ploughing. Pottery sherds recovered from the ditches indicate that the monument was probably constructed and used in the Iron Age, from about the third century BC, falling into disuse in the early first century AD, before the Roman Conquest. Scheduled.
