Visited the site today and although obvious to see the earthworks the dry bracken and leafs made it hard to get a decent picture. However they were all easy to spot, particularly the one running north to south which was up to 8ft high in places. There are 2 earthworks at bridles copse , one runs southwest to northeast along the northern edge of the river and the other one starts the other side of the river running south then bending round to the south east. ginger tt Posted by ginger tt

Linear earthwork. One of several associated with a late Iron Age, precursor to the Roman town of Calleva. The earthwork is in Bridle's Copse,. ginger tt Posted by ginger tt
