The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. 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.


Cropmarks of a Roman settlement west of Allington Hill consisting of a rectangular ditched enclosure covering three acres. There is a small, almost square, enclosure in the north-east corner and traces of other internal subdivisions. A slightly sunken area in the centre may represent the site of a building, surface finds of architectural debris. Sherds of coarse Romano-British pottery, including mortaria, have been found, apparently 3rd to 4th century. Possibly the site of a villa.
