Possible embanked pits, of a possible Second World War date, are seen as earthworks on 1940s aerial photographs before being subsequently levelled (S1). The possible embanked pits are aligned in an approximate large oval shape and most likely relate to Second World War military training features. Further possible embanked pits are seen approximately 160m to the south east. The features can be seen as low earthworks on the 1940s aerial photographers and are presumed to have been levelled. Due to the size of the features and the scale of the aerial photographs, an extent of area has been used to map the second area of embanked pits located at TL 8319 7511 and for some of the smaller embanked pits centred at TL 8307 7528.
