Bevisbury facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Bevisbury is the site of a former Iron Age plateau fort of a single bank and ditch construction. The site is now largely destroyed and overgrown and the southern ramparts are the best preserved. There are several pits that have been cut into and around the site which were probably quarries, and a private house lies within the north east corner.


The site lies to the east of the village of Chute, in Wiltshire, but itself lies just within the civil parish of Tangley in the county of Hampshire. The site is intersected by a Roman Road, now Hungerford Lane, which travels broadly northwest to southeast, and runs between Winchester and Mildenhall (near Marlborough). To the east lies the area of Well Bottom and Forty Acre Wood, to the southwest is Cathanger Wood. The site lies at a height of 220m AOD.
