Tyne and Wear HER(4847): Earsdon, rectilinear enclosure - Details
Earsdon, rectilinear enclosure
An aerial photograph taken on 8th October 1980 and held by North Tyneside Metropolitan Borough Council, records a possible feature located in the field immediately to the south of Earsdon and west of Wellfield. It would appear to be a rectilinear enclosure, with a number of internal and external features, of the type identified elsewhere on the Northumberland coastal plain by Jobey and assigned an Iron Age or Romano-British date.
