Spta 2252

Hob Uid: 224607
Location :
Wiltshire
Everleigh
Grid Ref : SU2064052600
Summary : A sub circular enclosure is visible as a slight earthwork, though it was originally noted on air photographs. It comprises a slight bank with internal ditch, possibly interrupted by two entrances or causeways to the southeast and northwest. The diameter is circa 65 metres to 72 metres. The site has been interpreted as a possible henge, though alternatives cannot be ruled out.
More information : A circular mark 60 paces in diameter, 193 in circumference, visible on APs 4276 and 9122. (1)

SU 20645260: A henge, slightly oval on plan and much reduced by ploughing, measuring some 45.0m in diameter internally. A probable entrance is visible in the SW and there is the suggestion of another in the NE. Surveyed at 1:2500. (2)

A probable Class II henge, oval in plan 72m NW-SE, 65m NE-SW. The ditch 0.6m deep with an inner bank 0.2m high. A causewayed enclosure is present on the southwest, with another, ill-defined on the north east. (3)

Sub-circular enclosure, visible as a slight earthwork, defined by a bank and internal ditch and possibly broken by two entrances. Possible henge. (4)
