Description

The monument comprises the remains of an enclosed settlement of prehistoric date represented by cropmarks visible on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland at around 40m OD. It comprises a sub-circular enclosure of approximately 30m diameter defined by a single ditch some 2m wide with a possible entrance in the E. A darker patch in the centre of the enclosure may indicate the remains of deposits associated with former internal structures or areas of activity.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the visible remains and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 70m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
