Tog Hill Camp

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Details of site on Pastscape

Earthworks of a supposed ancient 'camp' on Tog Hill. The site appears to comprise a low boundary bank, probably Medieval, and several tracks. (AREA ST 7300 7210) "Camp". (1)
"Tog Hill Camp" A mound has been thrown up almost parallel to the brow of the hill with a deep ditch on the escarpment side, and a shallow ditch on the other side. (2-3) There is another slight ditch more to the west. (4)
A mysterious earthwork. Whatever it is, it is not a camp, and the ditch is too small. (5)
These earthworks fall in a rough semi-circle around the end of a shallow re-entrant. They cannot be directly approached, the fields are under corn, but are readily visible and would appear to be Md field ways and lynchets. They are certainly, as Crawford says, not part of a camp. Of minor significance. (6)
Area ST 730721: The 'ancient earthwork' on Tog hill described by Playne and noted by Witts (sources 2-3) appears to comprise a low boundary bank, probably medieval, and several tracks. (7)
