Tyne and Wear HER(1330): Morley Hill, ? ditched enclosure - Details
Morley Hill, ? ditched enclosure
There is aerial photographic evidence for a site(s) in the field north-east of Morley Hill farm. Cropmarks of ditches, perhaps two running parallel, and a corner or corners have been recorded. The remains were clearly visible as earthworks in January 2000 when it was recorded as a small rectangular enclosure 40 metres x 38 metres with a slight bank surrounded by a ditch. The top half of a bun-shaped quern was previously recorded on the site.
