Full Description

A penannular ring ditch approximately 40m in diameter, visible on APs (S1)(R1)(R2).

March 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme.
The cropmarks described above, which were recorded from aerial photographs (S2), and which actually form a subrectangular enclosure, are of doubtful archaeological origin. A natural and/or recent agricultural origin is more likely; the cropmarks may equate to a subrectangular area of taller vegetation.
