Codford Circle, with its bank and ditch, viewed from the air looking south, with Punch Bowl Bottom to the right. In the middle distance St Mary’s Church and East Farm with the village to their right. Further south the river Wylye and the downland above Sherrington, clothed partly in extensive woodland along Great Ridge.
An aerial photograph revealed crop marks within the extant single bank and ditch, consistent with a much earlier type of monument, a Neolithic causewayed enclosure. All the datable finds suggest that the pit and its deposit belong to the early Iron Age rather than the Neolithic period. Nothing comparable has been found in other similar hilltop enclosures. Further investigations are planned.
