Description

The monument comprises an enclosure, dating to the prehistoric period, visible as cropmarks on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies in arable farmland, at a height of around 25m OD, and probably represents the remains of an enclosed settlement site dating to the Bronze Age. Its limits are defined by a narrow ditch, and the feature is oval in form, its known extent measuring 50m from N to S by 60m transversely.

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 on plan, measuring 80m in diameter, as marked in red upon the accompanying map.
