Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A roughly circular earthwork is visible on aerial photographs on the northern edge of South Regis Common, Challacombe. Centred at approximately SS 7112 4083 on a fairly steep northwest facing slope above an unnamed stream or combe, the monument resembles a hut circle or building platform, possibly dating to the later prehistoric period or Bronze Age. It takes the form of a ring bank, measuring approximately 23 metres across, but spread and uneven on the south side, and enclosing an area measuring 15 metres. A break on the eastern side may represent an entranceway. However, the monument is heavily mutilated, and a precise date or function cannot be ascertained from aerial photographs alone. [1,2]
