Activities

Field Visit (17 January 2016)

The wall around the crest of a low natural hillock 240m SSE of the old stables at Cammo House is a plantation wall of late 19th century date, now largely ruinous, which encloses a roughly egg-shaped area measuring 75m from NE to SW by a maximum of 54m transversely close to the broader SW end. The enclosed area contains a low, probably earlier, grass-grown field bank and what may be a shallow quarry from the edge of which a length of ditch extends towards the NW.

Visited by HES Survey and Recording (JRS) 17 January 2016.
