Notes

Cross-valley dyke across the Gosport-Alton road. This probably forms part of the Froxfield Dyke complex (SU72NW4), a sherd picked out of the bank indicating a possible Iron Age date, although the dating is not secure. The work has been levelled to the West of the road, but to the East comprises two contiguous bivallate ditches with a bank between them.
