Monument record LCS 036 - Site of a ring ditch, reinterpreted as a possible saltern mound (LCS 182)

Please read our .

Summary

A ring ditch of unknown but probably Bronze Age date was recorded from cropmarks visible on aerial photographs. The ring ditch was not recognised in a subsequent survey of aerial photographs for this area; the cropmarks probably equate to those interpreted as the remains of a possible ‘red hill’, recorded at this same location (LCS 182).
