Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


An east-west aligned cross dyke constructed across a chalk ridge which forms part of the Sussex Downs. The 40 metre long earthwork consists of a ditch up to 8 metres wide and 0.8 metres deep flanked to the north by a bank up to 6 metres wide and 0.4 metres high. To the east, the earthworks gradually fade out on the gently sloping ground. The cross dyke originally continued for a further 70 metres across the ridge to the west of the monument, but the earthworks here have been levelled and significantly disturbed by modern ploughing. Scheduled.
