Cropmarks reveal an irregular enclosure with internal trackways of a type rarely seen in this part of E Anglia. The site was under cultivation at the time of the visit and nothing was seen on the ground (S1). Roughly D-shaped enclosure with straight side to E. Entrance in approx centre of W side, whence ditched track runs into interior. Interior contains other sets of parallel ditches and at least one large dark patch. Enclosure and rest of field criss-crossed by other linear crop marks, drains ? Field also contains possible periglacial features. (see 'Not to be published on web' tab for finder/s and/or findspot/s)(owner) says that large dark patch visible was a gravel pit within his lifetime. Field occupies a S-facing slope overlooking the Stour estuary and has gravel subsoil. E-centre, where D-shaped enclosure lies, is slight natural plateau. Field under sugar beet at time of visit, with bare soil between rows well-weathered; but no trace of soil marks or artefacts could seen.
