Flag Fen

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork

Flag Fen (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) by Zeb A Drove Road. Part of the Flag Fen field system (best seen from above), "lined by ditches planted with hedges (probably winter hard wood cuttings such as Hawthornes, Slow & Dog Rose) in shallow banks to make hedges. The road was built to drive cattle & sheep into fields & open fen without disturbing livestock. This is known as the ground is rich in phosphates from animal dung. It also contained sheep and cattle bones".
