Full Description

Two apparently rectangular pits, of unknown date, visible on the land side of the sea bank south of Iken Church (at TM 41215624 and TM 41215619). The pits may be overlain by the bank (in which case they may be oyster pits similar to the complex on the other side of the bank), or they may actually be 'borrow' pits to provide material for the sea bank.
