This is an extensive set of square celtic fields on a south facing hill, south of the village of Sydling St Nicholas. These fields have never been ploughed and are a rare survival locally. They are only about a mile west of the large enclosure on Grimstone down. There were also settlements at nearby Shearplace hill and Smacam Down. formicaant Posted by formicaant
