Monument record LCS 033 - Oval enclosure and 2 smaller ring ditches of unknown date, visible as cropmarks.

Please read our .

Summary

Cropmarks of a circa 50m by 35m oval enclosure (open to NE side) and two possible smaller (circa 20m) 'pennanular' or 'causewayed' ring ditches (probably natural). However a brief assessment of the aerial photographs did not reveal any clear indication of the ring ditches. Some features were visible and may feasibly relate to salt production associated with LCS 134.

January 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Beauty National Mapping Programme.
This site is just outside of the NMP project area (falling within the previously undertaken Suffolk Coast NMP area). However a brief assessment of the aerial photographs did not reveal any clear indication of the ring ditches recorded above. Some features were visible and may feasibly relate to salt production associated with LCS 134.
