Gate Ditch (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) by UncleRob This is very tricky to photograph, so get your specs on and peer closely. The gate ditch extends from bottom left up to top right, passing in front of Jimit (kneeling respectfully? no just looking for his baccy) and ending up between the orange health 'n' safety netting and the blue archaeologist-carrier. It is on the surface about an inch or two's depression, about 2 feet wide at most. Here, incidentally, we are just outside The Avenue's "elbow" (there's a water trough nearby for the sheep) and looking towards Stonehenge, which is just over the rise.
