Westgate

Villa

A ditched enclosure of the type examplified by that at Ditchley, has been observed and recorded from the air in fields to the south of Westgate-on-Sea on the Isle of Thanet. The single ditch defines a square measuring about 150 feet (c.46 m) on each side, thereby enclosing an area of about ½-acre (c.0.2 ha). There is a single centrally-placed gateway in one side, and a small rectangular annexe appears to be attached near one corner. Faint traces of a building of unknown nature were observed on A.P.'s at the centre of the main enclosure. (JRS 1953 p.95.)
