MMO1781 - Possible prehistoric enclosure southeast of Trentishoe Down (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A possible prehistoric enclosure is visible on aerial photographs as a low earthwork on the southeast side of Trentishoe Down. Centred at SS 6346 4727, a roughly ovoid bank is visible enclosing an area of the moor. The bank varies in width from between 1 to 2 metres wide, and the area enclosed measures some 30 metres in diameter. The enclosure is situated on a steep southeast facing slope. No apparent entranceway is visible. A more precise date for this monument cannot be established from aerial photographs alone, and further study is required. [1,2] Monument MDE8996 records natural outcrops in this location, previously misinterpreted at clearance cairns. It is not clear whether this enclosure may in fact be part of this outcrop.
