What will I see?
Two star-shaped barrows and a small enclosure (scheduled). East Hill is surprisingly rich in archaeology. Hutchinson mapped a number of features and more came to light when the Forestry Commission allowed Sheila Pollard to examine the area when it was being prepared for tree planting in the 1960’s.
To help protect the site and allow Hazel Riley to survey it, POH volunteers cleared a small scheduled enclosure only a couple of metres away from the road, as well as two starshaped features, the latter of which had puzzled Hutchinson.
