Black Ditches, near Cavenham
This Anglo-Saxon earthwork runs in a north-south direction for about two kilometres. Wikipedia says, "It is the most easterly of the five earthworks of the Wuffings kingdom that defended the ancient road of Icknield Way, the others being Devil's Dyke, Fleam Dyke, Bran ditch and Brent Ditch. It is not as well preserved as the western defences, and unlike these other earthworks, access to the Black Ditches is limited, with no public right of way. It is therefore best viewed from the public road." This view was not from the public road, but alongside the earthwork.
