Full Description

Cropmarks of a slightly sub-circular enclosure, approximately 26m in diameter, which is probably the location of a former wind mill. The site is located within Mill Hill field, although there is no evidence for the mill on early OS mapping. The cropmark has no visible entrances or internal features, but is surrounded by a field system (MSZ27200), one of these boundaries passes alongside the enclosure, but does not appear to truncate it, which may imply they are contemporary. Helen Saunders (Essex County Council) January 2014. (S1-S2)
