Great Ayton Moor Iron Age Enclosure.

A sub-rectangular, banked and ditched enclosure on Great Ayton Moor. The conspicuous earthwork was largely ignored by Archaeologists until the 1970’s when it was excavated by  Tinkler and Spratt.

The enclosure consists of a stoney earth bank and ditch with an entrance on the southern side. The foundations of a paved hut were found within the enclosure. Pottery found at the site was dated to 300-100 BC or earlier and indicated occupation into the late Iron Age.
