Type and Period (4)
October 2013. Lothingland, Lowestoft and North Suffolk Coast and Heaths National Mapping Programme.
The cropmarks of a pair of small ring ditches are visible on aerial photographs (S1-S2) and is located within an area of multi-period fields and enclosures (SOL 008). The site is centred on TM 5124 9919. The smaller ring ditch is 4m in diameter and the larger example is 7.5m in diameter. Given the small size of these ring ditches in comparison with the other nearby examples (LUD 013, LUD 015) and the fact they are located within an enclosure (LUD 008) it seems reasonable to suggest that these relate the either eavesdrop gulley of small roundhouses or agricultural structures. The date of these enclosures is uncertain, although a Roman date has been suggested.
