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 160m OD. It comprises a roughly rectangular enclosure approximately 35m WNW-ESE by about 50m NNE-SSW, with a ditch some 2m wide and a markedly rounded NE corner. The S side of the enclosure is not clearly visible. There appear to be entrances in the W and N sides.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the enclosure and an area around it in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 90m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
