Monument record LCS 071 - Cropmarks of uncertain archaeological significance

Please read our .

Their archaeological significance is doubtful, however, and they are instead likely to be of natural and/or recent agricultural origin.

Full Description

Causewayed ring ditch approximately 10m diameter, surrounded by oval boundary, visible from APs (S1)(R1)(R2).

March 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme.
The cropmarks of a causewayed ring ditch surrounded by an oval boundary, described above, appear to have been recorded from aerial photographs (S2), rather than run OS/69070 as suggested in the report (S1). They are of doubtful archaeological origin; a natural and/or recent agricultural origin is more likely.
S. Tremlett (Norfolk Historic Environment Service), 26th March 2015.
