Wheathampstead Heritage: Virtual Museum Exhibit
Main Description: Click to expand/contract
As you cross Beech Hyde Lane – the route of a Roman road – to take the footpath to Coleman Green, you can see a line of trees in the distance on your left. These trees indicate the position of the Slad.
This ditch is slightly smaller than Devil's Dyke but was almost certainly constructed at the same time and formed the opposite side of the ‘oppidum' or settlement that the Catuvellauni are believed to have established here.
The Slad is not open to the public.
