Settlement Site
As a result of previous finds made during gravel extraction, excavations in advance of gravel working at Hook in 1954 revealed extensive evidence of occupation including a rectangular ditched enclosure with gateway, and possibly an interior bank, dated by pottery finds to the late Iron Age. This enclosure ditch was succeeded at some point in the Iron Age by a palisade. Slightly to the east is another rectangular ditched enclosure which appears to date slightly later to the early Roman period. Also on the site were a number of features of unknown function containing mediaeval pottery indicating some sort of occupation. SMR SU50 NW14     SU 511 054
