SU4242 : Field next to the Andyke

taken 5 years ago, near to Middleton, Hampshire, Great Britain

Field next to the Andyke
Field next to the Andyke
The Andyke, marked by the line of trees across the top of this field, is a large ditch and dyke ancient monument which may be the main defensive feature of what was once an iron age promontory fort, although the site has never been fully archaeologically studied. The A303 which runs behind the trees on the left, breaches the northern end of this 530 m long earthwork. The field in this photo is planted with stubble swede.
