Monument Number 214250

Hob Uid: 214250
Location :
Wiltshire
Bowerchalke
Grid Ref : SU0224022460
Summary : Univallate earthwork on Marleycombe Hill, part of a large irregular enclosure.
More information : (SU 0224 2246 to SU 0263 2239) Ditch (NR). (1)

A winding univallate ditch, over 300 yds long, on Marleycombe
Hill (2), now partially ploughed out (3). It apparently bends to
avoid the barrows Bower Chalke 9-11 (SU 02 SW 5) and is earlier
than the surrounding field system (SU 02 SW 1). It is uncertain
whether the apparent continuation to the southeast is part of
the ditch or a lynchet. Ground checked by C M Piggot in 1951.

The eastern end of this linear has been ploughed out but the
remainder, including scoops of a possible settlement area at
SU 0215 2244, is grass covered and in good condition. (2,3)

Contrary to authority 2's assessment the linear seems to be
later than the field system.

Resurveyed at 1:2500. (4)

Surveyed by the RCHME; not a linear but the surviving section of a large irregular enclosure. (5)
