Full Description

Ring ditch, circa 23m in diameter, adjacent to FOS 010 (S1). Other, very faint example/s possible.
Within field system FOS 027.

May 2014. Lothingland, Lowestoft and North Suffolk Coast and Heaths National Mapping Programme.
A ring ditch, circa 20m in diameter as described above, is visible on aerial photographs (S2) within a possible field system (SHER FOS 027), and adjacent to a second, slightly larger ring ditch (SHER FOS 010) and a third possible ring ditch to the north (SHER FOS 032). As stated above, it is possible that the field contains other, very faint possible ring ditches, although all the features are visible against a background of geological marks and it is difficult to discern the archaeological features.
E. Ford (Norfolk Historic Environment Service), 1st May 2014.
