Devil's Dyke, near Newmarket
Devil's Dyke, near Newmarket
The Devil's Dyke is believed to have been built by the East Anglian Saxons in the 6th or 7th centuries. This rampart was built as a barrier against the Britons to the west, and to control a number of routeways into East Anglia. Three Roman roads cross the dyke, which extends 12km in a NW/SE line between the villages of Reach and Woodditton. The crossings were important places for controlling trade and the movement of people.
