Description

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

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 50m OD. It comprises an oval ditched enclosure, measuring about 16m ENE-WSW by 8m internally, within a ditch up to 3m broad. There are traces of an outer concentric ditch on the S and N.

The monument appears to represent a small enclosed settlement of later prehistoric date. 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 60m, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.
