Cropmarks of a ring-ditch, which may represent a ploughed out round barrow of Bronze age date. The ring ditch has a causeway or entrance on the south-west side and is 28m in diameter. While the ring ditch could represent a former windmill site there is no evidence on the available photographs for internal features such as cross-trees.
