Cropmarks of an incomplete curvilinear enclosure with an inturned entrance of a prehistoric date, possibly Iron Age. The enclosure is 71m in diameter with a single internal pit visible. The enclosure has an inturned entrance on the eastern side and the south-west side of the enclosure is not visible but is masked by geology and possibly truncated by a farm track. Then enclosure is transected by a field boundary which gives the appearance of a straight edge to the south-west side of the enclosure, but the curvilinear ditch continues on the west side of this field boundary showing the enclosure is curved, but incomplete. Helen Saunders (Essex County Council), March 2015. (S3-S4)
