Earthwork in Chepstow Park Woods
Earthwork in Chepstow Park Woods
The earthwork is located near the summit of Chepstow Park Hill close to a forest track. The trees around the site have recently been thinned. The circular earthwork consists of an outer bank (to the right of the photo), a ditch (centre), and a central mound (to the left). Within the mound there are the ruins of small house. Following a recent local campaign Chepstow Park Woods have been retained in public ownership and are managed by the Forestry Commission. Patches of native woodland survive in predominantly coniferous plantation.
