The western complete ring located as plotted by Rog Palmer for Rendlesham survey in 2008 and c. 18m in diameter, also visible in magnetometry survey on the west side of an irregular, roughly D-shaped enclosure.

Assessment of the historic aerial photographs (S2) for this site has indicated that these ring ditches formed part of Second World War gun emplacements and not prehistoric barrows, see RLM 062 for details of the defences.
