MONUMENT NO. 35293

DESCRIPTION + /

A circular enclosure, probably dating to the later prehistoric period, 23m in diameter defined by a stony bank 3.7m wide and 0.6m high is visible on the summit of Hoccombe Hill. There does not appear to be a ditch. There is an entrance on the eastern side of 6.5m which has been widened and damaged recently. The interior is level and has been extensively disturbed by animal feeders. A number of shells and pieces of shrapnel raise the possibility that the feature was used for training purposes during World War II.
