Notes

Earthwork remains of a Iron Age or Romano-British small enclosed settlement in Knuck Wood. The enclosure is sub-rectangular in plan, measuring approximately 70 metres southwest-northeast by 105 metres northwest-southeast, with an internal area of about 0.35 hectares. It is defined by an earth and stone bank which in the northern side survives to a maximum height of 1.7 metres. On the south and southwestern sides it varies in height from 1.5 metres to 2.4 metres. On the western side the bank has been cut by a road. The bank is bounded by an external ditch which survives as a slight earthwork between 3 metres and 4 metres wide on the south and southwest sides. The exact location of the entrance is not certain but is thought to be at the western end of the northern side.
