Monument Number 216104

Hob Uid: 216104
Location :
Wiltshire
All Cannings
Grid Ref : SU0907064490
Summary : A prehistoric linear boundary ditch circa 400 metres long with a central break of circa 80 metres, situated on Tan Hill. Comprising a ditch and bank, the earthwork may well be connected with another to the east (SU 06 NE 41). It has been plough damaged but is visible on aerial photogarphs. Scheduled.
More information : SU 09076449 to SU 09456449. A boundary feature extending
along a S facing hillside for 400.0m with a central break of 80.0m.
It comprises a 4.0m wide and 0.4m deep ditch with a bank on the lower
side 4.0m wide overall and 0.6m maximum height. The condition on the
whole is not good, and it has been ploughed over. The earthwork may
have linked with a similar one 350.0m to the E (SU 06 NE 41) but
numerous hollow ways have destroyed intermediate traces. Presumed to
be of LBA or IA origin, and to form part of the other local field
system or ranch boundaries.
Surveyed at 1:2500. (1)

The feature described by the previous authorities has been mapped
from aerial photographs. (2)
