Howden (Newbrough and Fourstones)

Around Howden farmhouse are a series of undated earthworks. They were once thought to be part of a camp and possibly Iron Age or {Roman] in date. However, they may be associated with later, medieval or early post-medieval settlement at Howden. They have also been described as a group of overgrown rubble enclosures with no coherent village pattern.
