MMO3608 - Possible late prehistoric enclosure east of Huish Barton (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
A large sub-rectangular ditched enclosure is visible on aerial photographs as a cropmark in fields east of Huish Barton, Nettlecombe. Visible as an area of darker crop growth, suggesting a ditch measuring up to 4 metres wide, the enclosure itself measures approximately 55 metres across. There is no visible entrance. The enclosure is bisected by a pathway but the full profile is visible. Its precise date is uncertain, but it may well belong to the later Prehistoric period, possibly the Iron Age. Further survey is required. Two other cropmark enclosures are visible within the same field (MMO3607 and MMO3609).
