Tyne and Wear HER(111): Sunderland, Hasting Hill, circular features - Details
Sunderland, Hasting Hill, circular features
There are a number of circular and sub-circular features visible as cropmarks nearby the Hasting Hill interrupted ditch enclosure and possible cursus, or ceremonial pathway. Some have been described as ring ditches, while other sources have described them as barrows, or burial mounds. One stands out prominantly on aerial photographs outside the south end of the possible cursus. These remains are probably being steadily destroyed by ploughing. SCHEDULED ANCIENT MONUMENT.
