Archaeology Notes

HU34SW 43 3284 4377

During the course of a coastal zone assessment survey, a 3m wide and 05m high earthen bank was recorded running perpendicular to the coast. It is eroding over very high cliffs at its S extremity. It lies in rough grazing and is visible for over 50m inland.

The remains were assessed as being in fair condition, although further survey work was recommended in the area.
