Description

The monument comprises a souterrain of prehistoric date, visible as a cropmark on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies on fairly level ground in arable farmland at around 55m OD. It comprises a tightly curved souterrain measuring about 12m in length. There are a number of amorphous cropmarks in the immediate vicinity which may represent the remains of associated structures.

Souterrains are semi-subterranean structures generally regarded as having been used for storage in later prehistory, and usually found associated with the remains of above-ground timber roundhouses.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to be found. It is circular with a diameter of 50m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
