UFFINGTON CAUSEWAYED ENCLOSURE

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of a Neolithic causewayed enclosure, seen as cropmarks about 200 metres northeast of Uffington and about 500 metres north of the River Welland. The cropmarks were transcribed and interpreted by RCHME in 1996 as part of the Industry and Enclosure in the Neolithic Project. The cropmarks consist of an arc of two concentric circuits of interrupted ditch, the arc being about 120 metres long and the two circuits about 8 metres apart. Assuming that there was a complete enclosure circuit, the visible cropmarks would represent much of the northern half. Cropmarks which may represent parts of the circuit to the south are visible on air photographs, but the cropmarks in this area are confused by the background geology. If they are associated with the enclosure, then its probable dimensions would be around 150 metres by 130 metres, enclosing just over 1 hectare.
