Very close to the circular feature in EPW038821, near Wennington Hall School, Lancashire. I can't see this on Google Maps (though the feature in EPW038821 is visible) and cannot find any reference.

Hi Dylan,



Great spot! Thank you, this and the two other images of the earthwork are really tricky so it's great to have them identified. The original Aerofilms Ltd Register entry is "Wellington". Close, but not close enough, to the actual place name! We'll update the catalogue entry, and post the new data here in due course.



Yours, Katy

Wennington Hall, Lancs. A faint boundary bank passing across the earthwork was not on contemporary maps, but is now re-established. Unfortunately the earthwork does not appear on any map edition that I have seen. However, the location is established unambiguously by the structure of the nearby walled garden, with a D-shaped extension on the southern wall. A glasshouse is seen within this in the picture, and is shown in the contemporary (1913 & 1894) 1:2500 OS maps.

possibly Ditchfield hall grounds in background right, much of the area was developed after the war for prefab and council housing.



one, possibly two circles were reported from wartime aerial photography within this area of Ditton

Hi Beverley,



Interesting suggestion, thanks for looking into this image. I've been looking at the OS for Ditchfield Hall but can't make the mapped boundaries of the premises fit with this walled garden. Unfortunately there is no information at all in the original Aerofilms Ltd Register entry for the photo. The company visited locations in Northumberland before and Tunstall after they took this shot.

possibly field markings near the Ditton area of Widnes formerly Lancashire (now in Cheshire)

The walled garden in the top right, together with the heated greenhouse & the mixed varieties of tree in the plantation suggest that this is a photo of the surroundings of a large, probably Victorian, mansion house.

There is a possibility of adjacent ancient archaeological features in the featured field, eg; the concentric circles & the 'straight' horizontal line in the foreround.

Some sort of Bronze Age round barrow - maybe a disc barrow - with ridge and furrow respecting it. Walled garden of what is presumably a large estate house in background. Salisbury Plain or general Wiltshire/Dorset/Hampshire area?
