Defensive ditch at Clare Common
Defensive ditch at Clare Common
Clare Common is an important archaeological site; the large ditches and banks are probably the defences of an Iron Age site known as Clare Camp, built more than 2,000 years ago. Much of the D-shaped earthwork is still clearly visible, although erosion and later alterations have reduced the size of the banks.

About 700 years ago, the medieval manor of Erbury (taking its name from this 'earth-burh' or earth fort) stood within this site. This fell into disuse by the middle of the 14th century.
