Description

The monument comprises an enclosed settlement of prehistoric date, visible as a series of cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument is situated on a prominent shelf in an arable field at about 300m OD. It comprises a circular enclosure defined by two concentric ditches. It measures about 40m in diameter, within ditches measuring about 2m wide and set about 5m apart. Such enclosures are characteristic of lowland settlement in the first millennium BC.

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 90m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
