Directions:
See directions for Randwick Long Barrow.
The Dyke is next to the information board – can’t miss it!


The information board states that the Dyke is approximately 2,000 years old but its actual function is unknown.

The Dyke is about 1.5m high and runs in a straight line for about 60m before disappearing into the trees.

Worth a look when visiting the Long Barrow.
