taken 1 year ago, 3 km from Etchinghill, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Rugeley (Penkridge Bank) Camp - Possible Destructor Site
Rugeley (Penkridge Bank) Camp - Possible Destructor Site
This clear area to the north of Lines 1-3 has a thin layer of vegetation over a hard concrete surface stained black possibly consistent with use as a refuse destructor site. There were several similar destructors around the camps to prevent disease from accumulating rubbish. The camps when fully occupied were the size of large towns.
The Chase Through Time :: SK0016
The Chase Through Time is a Heritage Lottery funded project with Staffordshire Council, Historic England and local volunteers to unravel over 2000 years of manís activity across Cannock Chase.

Cannock Chase has a rich history with its Iron Age Camp at Castle Ring, Medieval Hunting Forest, Deer Park and grazed heathland, two Great War Training Camps and post war forestry. Hidden beneath the trees and scrub there is a lot to be found.

As part of the project a LIDAR survey was undertaken of the twenty eight square mile area. Some features have been verified on the ground by the volunteers assisting the Historic England researchers. However, with such a large area only some areas have been visited.

Using the images submitted on Geograph in conjunction with the LIDAR and Historic England mapping on Arcgis should allow a photographic record of the features to be developed by the volunteers.

The combined LIDAR map can be found at LinkExternal link
