Bokerley Dyke

Bokerley Dyke
Description and Information

This earthwork together with Grim’s Ditch defines the Hampshire/Dorset border for many miles. It is thought to have originated in the Bronze Age or Early Iron Age and was an important political and cultural boundary which divided areas showing markedly different patterns of land division.

The dyke underwent changes through the centuries as it was adapted to suit the needs of later inhabitants; such as the more defensive requirements of the later Iron Age and Roman periods.

Parking is available at the nature reserve car park at grid ref SU037201.
