Notes

The remains of a Civil War redoubt. It consists of earthworks defining a sub-rectangular banked enclosure approximately 35 metres square internally. The enclosure is interpreted as a redoubt with ramparts up to 0.8 metres high and circa 3 metres in width. The ramparts project outwards on the northern and eastern corners to form two demi-bastions. The monument is one of several redoubts constructed by the Scots who comprised part of the besieging Parliamentarian forces during the final siege of Newark between November 1645 and May 1646. The arrangement of the demi-bastions and the location of the monument suggest that it was designed to protect the fording point across the Old Trent Dyke near the Red Lodge and also to enfilade the Kelham Road and the approach to a large Scots encampment known as `Edinburgh'. Scheduled.
