Battery near Upper South Farm
Battery near Upper South Farm
Looking north from the road that runs west to Doddeshall House, the line of trees on a slight embankment to the left mark the eastern side of a possible Civil War battery. A battery is a line of artillery, often positioned on a hill or fortified by earthworks. On the 1:25,000 map it is marked Civil War Battery, and on the 1:10,000 map as Earthwork with hatch marks. There is an area of raised ground behind trees, as well as a pond, and this site has been interpreted as a Civil War defence but this is tentative.
