PRIDDY CIRCLE 3

DESCRIPTION + /

A circular earthwork enclosure, one of the four so-called Priddy Circles (see ST 55 SW 4). The enclosure measures up to 190 metres across and is defined by an earthwork bank up to 1 metre high and seven metres wide, with an external ditch up to 1 metre deep and 5 metres wide. There are four gaps in the circuit. That to the south-south-west is considered an original entrance feature, perhaps partly because it directly faces the north-north-west entrance of Priddy 2 (ST 55 SW 125). No dating evidence has ever been recovered from any of the Priddy Circles. External ditches notwithstanding, they are generally regarded as probable henges.
