SD9875 : Tor Dyke

3 km from Kettlewell, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Tor Dyke
Tor Dyke
A defensive earthwork above Kettlewell utilising the natural escarpment. Part of the rampart can be seen. Over the wall is a ditch.

This was believed to have been built by the Brigantes in a vain attempt to keep the Romans out of the North Riding but is now thought to be the north eastern boundary of the Dark Age kingdom of Craven and once formed a line between Anglian invaders and native territories.
