MEM15644 - Possible shelter structure in Stoke Wood (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A small earthwork platform approximately 6.5 metres by 4.5 metres in size is on the lower western slopes of Prickslade Combe. The remains of rubble walls are visible on the east and northeastern sides of the platform. The structure might have been associated with the former field circa 20 metres to the east, perhaps as a seasonal shelter. The footpath MEM15641 abuts the platform on its southwest corner as it follows Prickslade Combe.
