Archaeological Feature


Physical Evidence

Two slots and a pit were recorded during archaeological evaluation at North Hill in 2012 by TWM. These features lay west of a possible prehistoric ditch (HER16320) but are believed to be medieval in date. However, no dating eveidence was recovered. The slots may represent the remains of a tiber structure in the rear of a toft of Dinnington village. The pit was semi-circular in plan and cut through one of the slots. It measured 1.39m in diameter and 0.15m in depth.
