Becca Banks (2)
Part of the Aberford Dykes.
Becca Banks are a series of earthworks and ramparts that tumble steeply down to the Cock Beck. They stretch for at least two miles north westwards from Aberford.
There is some debate as to their origin, but the favourite is Late Iron Age for purposes of defence and protection.
They are covered in woods so the full extent of these tumuli are difficult to appreciate, but would certainly have been an impressive and awesome sight when first constructed.
