Notes

Enclosure probably dating from the Romano British period. The enclosure is diamond shaped 83m accross from east to west and 71m from north to south, enclosing an area of 0.4ha. It is formed by a bank surrounded by aditch. The dimensions of this vary around the circuit. On the north western side the bank is 4.5m wide and the ditch is 8m wide and 1.1m below the crest of the bank. It is possibly a pastoral enclosure, leveled areas possibly representing huts have been found inside suggesting it could have been a enclosed settlement. Scheduled.
