Tyne and Wear HER(16170): Brenkley, ditch - Details
A single ditch (running NNE-SSW) was identified during an archaeological evaluation at the proposed site of Brenkley Additional Surface Mine. The ditch could not be accurately dated but is believed to be Iron Age in origin. It may relate to the probable Iron Age settlement immediately located to the north or it could relate to a medieval ditch known to the east. Extensive evidence of the upstanding remains of medieval ridge and furrow was seen in all trenches across the field.
