About This Spot

Devil’s Dyke is one of the largest and best preserved Anglo-Saxon earthworks in England. It runs in an almost straight line from Woodditton south of Newmarket to Reach north-west of Newmarket. The Dyke is over 7 miles (11 km) long and is the largest of a series of ancient Cambridgeshire dykes. In some places the bank measures 9 metres (30 ft) high and 36.5 metres (120 ft) across. Its highest point is at Gallows Hill where it measures 10.5 metres (34 ft) from the bottom of the ditch to the top of the earth wall. The dyke does not start near the car park, and if you wish to walk its entire length you must start at Reach, about 1.25 miles (2 km) away.
