The field system, ring ditches, trackways and enclosures described above are visible as cropmarks on additional aerial photographs (S4)-(S14), along with numerous possible pit features. Additional ditches were visible in the northern corner of the site, centred on TM 3753 4603, and have been sketch-mapped from a photo that was not rectified due to insufficient control points.
