Maiden Bower

List Entry Number: 1015593 Historic England
Heritage Category: Scheduling
Location: Houghton Regis, Central Bedfordshire 
Date first scheduled: 13-Dec-1929
Maiden Bower is situated about 1km to the north east of Totternhoe, on a broad plateau below the Dunstable Downs which overlooks the northern edge of the Chiltern scarp. The monument includes a large univallate hillfort of Iron Age date, although surface finds, small scale excavation and recent geophysical surveys have also demonstrated the existence of a Neolithic causewayed enclosure in this location, and provided evidence of Romano-British activity within the ramparts.
