TL5355 : Fleam Dyke

near to Fulbourn, Cambridgeshire, Great Britain

Fleam Dyke
Fleam Dyke
The Fleam Dyke was built in around the 6th or 7th century AD as a defensive structure during wars between the kingdoms of Mercia and East Anglia. It runs along the hilly downland in southeast Cambridgeshire, cutting across the Icknield Way, between what would have been impassable fenland to the north-west and thick forest to the south-east. This is the north-western end of the dyke, looking down on the (now drained) fenland.
