The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


A cross-ridge dyke aligned north east-south west. Comprising an earthwork bank with a ditch on the northwest side, a 90 metre length has been recorded, though ploughing has left only a 12 metre length extant as an earthwork. It is presumed to be of later prehistoric, possibly Iron Age date.
