Casten Dike, Sutton Bank
Casten Dike, Sutton Bank
Part of the Cleave Dyke system which is the most westerly of a series of dyke systems on the Tabular Hills of north-east Yorkshire. The name has been given to a series of linear ditches and banks stretching north-south over 9km parallel with and close to the western scarp of the Hambleton Hills. The system was constructed between the Late Bronze Age and the Iron Age to augment the natural division of the terrain by river valleys and watersheds. The dyke system is associated with earlier round barrows which also marked the division of land.
