Description

The remains of this site are as a low bank forming a scarp 2.5 m high, facing SSW, runs for 85 m in a WNW-ESE direction. It then turns and runs for some 37 m in a NNW direction (see sketch plan). A possible entrance exists in the S side, but it may equally be the result of modern disturbance.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of earthwork remains . It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits.
