Earthworks and ditches in the Parish of Brandon and Bretford
Earthwork banks and a ditch can be seen on aerial photographs beside the railway to the north of Brandon Castle.
1 Earthwork banks and a ditch seen on aerial photographs beside the railway to the north of Brandon Castle were mapped as part of the English Heritage National Mapping Project. The bank and ditch may be associated with the abandoned village of Brandon MWA4266 to the north of the railway line or with the adjacent ridge and furrow cultivation. The irregular mounds may be the result of small scale quarrying.
2 Monument extended to include a number of earthworks visible to the south of those mapped, probably relating to medieval settlement activity (MWA4266). Plot/field boundaries are evident in modern aerial photography.
