well val i agree with you the field to the n.west does look intrestin ,there is a sopposed roman presence in the area,so who knows?as for the roundhouses??it is a scheduled site that the tony robinson crew were sopposed to look at but the foot n mouth delayed their plans ,a local archi group has had a look and think[acording to farmer]that the site is older than they origanally thought,,,,,so the jury is still out on that 1 i think.

Geophysics, great stuff (expensive though), post your results, It would be very interesting to see them. Iíve done quite a bit of it myself. What did you use, magnetomotry or resistivity mapping?

Afraid they are the property of Herefordshire Council. We used resistivity and the moisture content of the ground gave some good results. The records for the site have not been updated ( no surprise ) and it is still recorded as medieval but the four central pits which once held four upright posts, the flint finds and buried soils have dated the site.

Hi Ade, Weeeelllll, looking at the whole picture, so to speak, I'd say I can't see anything to suggest it's not modern. Given the size it should be a fort but there don't seem to be any marks inside as might be expected. If you look at the surrounding fields you'll see quite a few sectioned off areas, for whatever reason. Could it be one like these. I also noticed a WW11 decoy on map. Praps there's a connection there.
It will be interesting to see what Paul thinks. I've got one for him. Can't make out what it's s'posed to be. Undecided

Cheers Val. Reading up on the area it mentions that there was a Roman settlement in the area. But I love looking on that google earth I have another 7 I have found.

Hi Ade, again. Sounds like you're as bad as me. If it's a put to between dusting or browsing, then Google wins hands down. I've got that many yellow pins in mine it's getting hard to see the map. Enought to keep me going till the end  Shocked
All I need is permission, time and energy. Oh and some good weather.
You hoping for another Staffordshire hoard by the sound of it Grin

Have looked at this for you Ade and it is within a park pale. Don,t quote me on this but the length and shape would say to me that there was a field there before it was emparked and the cropmark you see was the hedge boundary removed for the landscaping within the park. The line below I think is water being drained to or from the Pool or another removed field boundary. The earliest map I have seen is 1810 so this park has looked like this for 200 years. Hope this helps

as someone has already said on this site[neil i think ]google earth is also good to look at a area after finds are made and then use google for clues,something i usually do,,my rule of thumb is,the fainter the crop mark the older it is.

Very true Paul. Thats why we can't all find a Roman Fort or a lost Medieval Villiage. Sad
