BUCKLAND

(22 miles N.N.E. of Cirencester)

(1) Hill-Fort (SP 085363), on Burhill, univallate, unexcavated, occupies a spur of the Cotswold escarpment ¼ mile N.E. of the village; parts of the bank have been levelled.

The surviving N.E. side is defined by a bank with an outer ditch, now extending less than half-way across the neck of the spur. The bank is 25 ft. wide and 5 ft. high, the ditch 30 ft. wide and 3 ft. deep. Plan, p. 23.


A dozen small sherds of undecorated hand-made pottery, including a simple rim, found in ploughsoil along the inner edge of the bank are in Gloucester City Museum.

The hill-fort, not shown on O.S. maps, was discovered by L. V. Grinsell in 1960 (cf. D. Verey, Gloucestershire: The Cotswolds (1970), 140).
