Notes

An enclosure of uncertain date. It is visible as earthworks on air photographs and has been surveyed. It was formerly described as a Roman temporary camp, but has been re-evaluated. The embanked square enclosure has no diagnostic Roman military characteristics. It is situated on a gently-inclined south-facing slope, in permanent rough pasture. The north-east corner of the monument is overlain by a comparatively recent walled plantation which has destroyed all evidence in this area.
