Site of Possible Searchlight Battery

Description of this historic site

Approximately 500m west of Little Kineton are four ring ditches that are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs. They appear to lie over the Medieval ridge and furrow. The ring ditches are similar in appearance to the World War II searchlight battery at Snowford Hill.

Notes about this historic site

1 Four ring ditches, one large and three small. The three small examples are grouped in a triangular form. The ring ditches appear to overlie ridge and furrow.
2 Morphologically this site is almost identical to a World War II searchlight battery at Snowford Hill (PRN 1364) and a number of other sites in Warwickshire. Some of the marks at the S of the cropmark complex PRN 4769 may be related to these WWII defences.
