    Fortunately this country is stuffed with ancient monuments, you're right mono.
    BYW pricklineess over the Suffolk/Sussex thing is because people - from UK too, - always, when you say you come from Suffolk, say something like "oh yes, I like Brighton too...". (Which for those who don't know is in Sussex - different direction/location altogether).
    Until recently that is - unfortunately we're having to battle the greatest invasion ever - incomers from London and beyond who've qualdrupled (octupled) in the past 15 or so years. I think we might at last be lookiing at defeat, but I'm thinking of getting out my woad....Actually I've done the opposite and moved to the city....

    Sorry....back to Cambridge....

    It's near Thetford in Norfolk, a short drive from Cambridge.

    I like the look of that site Mr Ben, I can see my photo already. Are English Heritage funny about cameras and tripods?

    Ancient sites

    Take a 2 hour drive up the A1 and go west to the Derbyshire peak district, plenty of sites here, search the net for The Peak District, stone circles, stone walls burial sites etc.
