Please read our .

Summary

A rectangular enclosure of post medieval date is depicted on 19th century maps and is visible as earthworks on imagery from a 2015 lidar survey. It lies within Elveden Warren (SHER ELV 039). As the lidar survey was flown relatively recently, it is probable that the earthworks still survive.
