The Holmes



This circular enclosure lays right next to the Roman road Batham Gate.
Over the years the enclosure was thought to be a Roman camp of some kind, until the road was found to built over and around the section of the enclosure it crosses over.
Nowadays it's thought to be a stock enclosure dating to the Bronze or Iron Age.
A modern drystone wall cuts the site in half.

Access is easy as it's by the side of the road, parking on the lane ain't.
