One Response to Archaeological Finds

    Hello,
    Whilst walking along the paths near North downs way and the railway line, north of Buckland. I came across a (old) lime mortar and hollow stone, dry stone wall section, covered in ivy.
    I believe now (35 years later) that it might of been used originally as water pipe, possibly roman (although now mostly smashed into 12″ sections, to build the wall section).
    I found this wall section in 1979/80/81.
    I also study google maps, and I have found several new sites around the country. Because there is also disturbance within the fields close to this strange wall section.
    I was wondering if you could possibly enlighten me on this. Please.
    Do you know about this site ?
