Castle Dykes

Hob Uid: 314678
Location :
Sheffield
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : SK3080083900
Summary : Site of earthwork (? pre 1655).
More information : SK 308839. A circular entrenchment known as Castle Dykes at Ecclesall. (Castle Dike Field is mentioned in 1655). (1-2)

There are no remains of this earthwork apart from a slight indefinable depression as SK 30818383 which may have represented part of a ditch. It is not defensively sited, however, and could be natural. (3)

SK 310838. Circular cropmark of entrenchment showing as a broad ring
on AP(a), its diameter is 76m by 68m and the NE circumference is obliterated by the field boundary. A possible entrance at the NW can be seen(4). Visited by Welsh in 1976 who agreed with the grid reference given by authy 4 and stated by him that the bank and ditch
were not natural. (4-5)
