Full description

August 2007. Norfolk NMP
A cropmark of part of a Roman road is visible on aerial photographs (S1). A negative linear cropmark is present for 152m on a roughly west to east alignment. Its position corresponds to the line of the Fen Causeway Roman road (NHER 2796). It is likely that the cropmark relates to the metalled or compacted surface of the road. The line of the road lies within the boundary of Bittering Quarry and the section visible as cropmarks may have been destroyed.
