Record Details

NHER Number:18322
Type of record:Monument
Name:Cropmarks of possible Roman road/trackway


Aerial photographs taken in 1980 showed the cropmarks of parallel ditches of a possible trackway at this location. This trackway appears to continue the line of Roman road (NHER 8786) and is therefore presumably a feature of contemporary date.

Images - none
