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.

again possibly Ditton/Ditchfield Road area of Widnes with housing development now covering it,

it was reported at the time but NO archaeological report at time of building, housing only started after the war, prefab then council housing

Appears to be a different angle of Photo EPW038821.

Looks like a henge monument or a causewayed enclosure (both Neolithic monuments in date). If it is, it should be easy enough to identify with the ridge and furrow respecting it and the later earthwork bisecting it.

Don't know location but this is same as EPW038821 - note the ridge and position of solitary shrub and nearby tree.
