Taking the road north into Silchester you come to a wooden parish notice board – on the left of the road. Park near the houses and a little beyond the notice board on the same side of the road you will see a public footpath sign leading to the houses of Hydes Platt.
Just past the footpath sign, amongst the bushes / trees you can see Flex Ditch with its 'pond' nearest the road. There isn't much to see – just a big overgrown ditch really!
Can't really say it is worth the effort although the ditch is very deep.
Visited the site today and it is a big ditch about 100 meters by 20 and a good 5 meters deep in the middle. There is a pond at the eastern end which is dry but boggy as I found out to my cost. No real idea as to its original use maybe linked to the other Iron Age earthworks in the area
