Full Description

Clear cropmarks (in turf?) of rectangular ?enclosures attached to SW side of larger rectilinear cropmark adjoining irregular angled cropmarks to N. Parallel NW-SE fainter cropmarks run to SE of these and are cut by another faint cropmark running NE-SW (possible anti-glider ditch?)(S1). The clear condition of the rectangular enclosures etc., suggest probably recent in origin though not shown on 1:10000, 1:10560 of 1st edition 1" OS maps.
