In the Devil's Dyke ditch
In the Devil's Dyke ditch
At 7 miles (12km) long The Devil's Dyke is the longest and largest of Cambridgeshire's Anglo-Saxon defensive ramparts, which date from the 6th and 7th centuries. It stretches from the edge of the fens at Reach (ahead) across Newmarket Heath to what was once the edge of impenetrable forest at Wood Ditton. On this stretch the ditch is shallower and the bank lower than they are elsewhere.
