Summary : Two parallel ditches, visible on aerial photographs as cropmarks on the western slopes of Lyn Down, may be boundary markers of late prehistoric date. They are part of a complex of cropmark features on Lyn Down and Stock Common which may be associated with the Iron Age enclosed settlements of Stock Castle and Roborough Castle.
More information : Two parallel ditches, visible on aerial photographs as cropmarks on the western slopes of Lyn Down at circa SS 72274667. Part of a complex of undated cropmark features on Lyn Down and Stock Common, the cropmarks are roughly 4 metres wide and between 23 and 28 metres apart. The function of the ditches is unclear but, with a second pairing of parallel ditched features to the north, they may form territorial boundary markers of late prehistoric date associated with the Iron Age enclosed settlements of Stock Castle and Roborough Castle.
