Tyne and Wear HER(5300): Hetton-le-Hole, Bracken Hill, possible enclosure - Details
Hetton-le-Hole, Bracken Hill, possible enclosure
Possible rectilinear enclosure. Measures 100-150 metres x 60 metres. The western end may be open ended. A probable later track from Great Eppleton SMV (HER 259) crosses the end of the enclosure. A fieldwalking survey collected six pieces of flint (including an EBA blade, a late Neolithic or EBA blade and a post medieval gun flint from a flintlock firearm) along with post medieval tile and clay pipe.
