BURY WALLS

DESCRIPTION + /

An Iron Age multivallate hillfort surviving as an earthwork. Possible hearths near the entrance were revealed by excavation in 1930, and a possible quernstone was also found. Building foundations, initially supposed to be medieval, were also noted (see SJ 52 NE 15). Recent research has suggested that these are actually the remains of a Romano-Celtic temple. There is a tradition of Roman occupation at Bury Walls, finds are supposed to include coins, armour, pottery and bricks, and a stone well was alleged to be a Roman bath. Scheduled.
