Keys to the Past

Possible later prehistoric and Roman period features near Bewick Bridge, Lilburn (Tillside)

Cropmarks on an aerial photograph of an area 800m west of Bewick Bridge may be enclosures surrounded by ditches or a pit alignment created between 2000 and 4000 years ago, in the later prehistoric period. Nearby, a rectangular enclosure surrounded by a ditch was created in the Roman period, probably as the boundary of a settlement or farmstead. The site is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
