Knollbury is a scheduled neolithic enclosure to the north west of Chadlington in Oxfordshire. Believed to be defensive in nature[1] the enclosure is rectangular (100 metres by 150 metres) formed by a two to four metre high and ten metre wide earth banks. The two gaps in the earth banks at the eastern corners are believed to be of a later date.[2]
