Full Description

Rectangular enclosure approximately 100m x 60m, with an entrance on the E side. Surrounded by intersecting field boundaries SLY 020, ARW 020 (S1) (S2). Crosses Arwarton/Shotley parish boundary.
A rectangular enclosure is visible on aerial photographs as a cropmark of a ditch, centred on TM 23153450 (S3). The cropmarks measure circa 100 x 60m, enclosing an area of circa 6000 square metres. There may be an entrance on the eastern side, but this may simply be a visual effect of the cropmark palimpsest in this area. The photographs referenced above were not available for examination. This enclosure is part of a wider cropmark landscape recorded in ARW 020, and from its association with the surrounding cropmarks is probably late prehistoric or Roman in date, but may be as late as Post-Medieval.
