List entry Description
Summary of Monument
Enclosure known as Park Wood Camp 470m north east of the church of St Luke.
Reasons for Designation
Despite partial excavation and afforestation the enclosure known as Park Wood Camp survives reasonably well. The interior of the enclosure and the bank and ditches will contain layers and deposits containing important archaeological and environmental evidence relating to its construction, use and occupation.
This record was the subject of a minor enhancement on 20 May 2015. This record has been generated from an "old county number" (OCN) scheduling record. These are monuments that were not reviewed under the Monuments Protection Programme and are some of our oldest designation records. As such they do not yet have the full descriptions of their modernised counterparts available. Please contact us if you would like further information.
This monument includes an enclosure situated on a gentile east facing slope in Southcrest wood. The monument survives as a circular enclosure approximately 45m in diameter, defined by an earthwork bank and a wide surrounding quarry ditch. The quarry ditch is about 1m deep with an entrance gap at the south eastern end.
