DEVIL'S DYKE

 

The Devil's Dyke is the finest Anglo-Saxon earthwork of its kind in the country and is protected as a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM).

It contains chalk grassland of international importance and has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and part is also a Special Area of Conservation (SAC).

The Dyke stretches in a near perfect straight line for 7½ miles (12 km) from the Fen edge at Reach, across the open chalk landscape near Newmarket and towards the more wooded landscape on the clay ridges, ending at Ditton Green.
