Description

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

The monument lies on gently sloping arable farmland at around 70m OD. It comprises a polygonal, roughly trapezoidal enclosure some 40m E-W by 35m at its wider, E end, within a ditch approximately 2m wide. There is a possible entrance in the SE. Several smaller enclosures adjoin the larger one to the N and NE. These include two ditches to the N, some 20m apart, defining a possible trackway.

The complex appears to represent a farming settlement and the form of the enclosure suggests a later prehistoric date.

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 110m as marked in red on the accompanying map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because of its potential to contribute to our understanding of prehistoric settlement and economy. The complexity of the visible remains suggests that significant information relating to the organisation of prehistoric agricultural activity will be preserved.
