Possible Linear Earthwork 600m NW of Church, Farnborough

Description of this historic site

The remains of a linear earthwork. It may have been constructed in the Medieval period to mark the boundary of two parishes. The earthwork is situated 600m north west of the church at Farnborough.

Notes about this historic site

1 A large mound overlooks a quarry at SP43145000. Other mounds continue the hedge boundary between Parsons Hill and Garden Place to the road at SP42934980. These mounds are bound by tree roots and may be the relics of a linear mound running along the crest of the ridge. This may be similar to a linear mound on the Fenny Compton – Avon Dassett parish boundary (PRN 6179), but is more heavily denuded.
