Full Description

Large & complex system of fields and trackways. Links with STU 003. Crosses Stutton/Tattingstone parish boundary and ?extends into Holbrook parish (S1)(S2)(S3).

Cropmarks of an extensive complex system of fields, trackways and enclosures multi-period in date. The field boundaries are fragmented and on different orientations implying they are multi-period. The trackway is visible for 350m and crosses many of the field boundaries. The small rectangular enclosure is 24m by 36m and is located to the north of the trackway and has a small ring-ditch within it, which may represent a ploughed out round house. The enclosure is cut by various field boundaries and ditches. The north-west corner of a large rectilinear enclosure is also visible with an entrance on the north boundary. The area has extensive short sections of ditches and further ditches which may form other small enclosures. Helen Saunders (Essex County Council), January 2015. (S4-S9)
