Oliver's Battery

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


The name comes from the belief that Cromwell sited his guns here during the Civil War to bombard Winchester Castle. In reality it's much too far away to have been used for this purpose as the Castle is about 2 miles distant.
The locals call the area "Ollie B"
