Full Description

A system of ditches is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs, centred on TM 29915028. The ditches form a regular rectilinear pattern enclosing two adjacent rectangular areas of ground, both roughly 25m by 18m in size. The pattern of the ditches does not suggest that they are related to the modern drainage system, although they are aligned with the existing drainage and field boundaries in the area. The enclosed areas may have formed platforms for some type of structure. (S1, S2)
