Notes

The remains of a possible henge south east of Foss Road Farm, and now located beneath a car park in Bingham Industrial Estate. Aerial photography revealed the site as a clear soil mark in the 1960s following ploughing of the field. Some Roman potsherds were apparently found, but their whereabouts are unknown. The farmer informed the Ordnance Survey in 1974 that the site had formerly appeared as a plough-damaged ditched mound. A protective layer of clay was placed over the monument prior to development in the 1970s. The site consists of a sub-circular platform surrounded by a ditch and external bank and measures a total of 35 metres in diameter. A causeway to the south east provides an entrance to the interior. The site is scheduled as a henge, although the farmer's reference to a mound suggests some caution may be needed as far as this interpretation is concerned.
