Pedam's Oak Earthwork

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


The County Durham Sites & Monuments Register describes this site as:

"A broad bank 5m. wide with traces of a ditch on the west side. It is poorly preserved, degraded and cut by hollow ways etc, but then improves to the north. Details are to be found in Ross C, B.A. diss: Pedam's Oak, 1987, p.86, 5.16 but no reason is given for the Bronze Age date. "
And also as:

"A bank and ditch on the north running southwest-northeast across the northernmost of Pedam's Oak fields. The bank is 3m. wide, the ditch 3m. wide x 0.5m. deep. It is shown as a trackway by the Ordnance Survey."
The map reference given here is accurate to within 1km.
