Full Description

Earthworks of an enclosure, with a low bank and ditch system of unknown date. The earthworks forming the enclosure and surrounding ditch are only visible on three sides on the available photography. The features are not visible on the 1st edition OS mapping and are not aligned with any visible field system, but the features are truncated by field boundaries so the enclosure may have been complete originally. The site is located close to the river and the banks may have protected the area from flooding. The earthworks had been destroyed by 1985. Helen Saunders (Essex County Council), March 2014. (S1-S2)
