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.


Notes

A small sub-circular enclosure is visible as a cropmark on air photographs. It comprises a single circular ditch with two entrance causeways on the east and west. The northern half is a fairly regular semi-circle, while the southern half is much more irregular. The two "entrances" effectively separate the northern curving cropmark from the southern half. Its maximum diameter is circa 22 metres. Harding and Lee list it as a probable henge, although it could be plausibly interpreted as a ring ditch, representing a ploughed-out round barrow. It has been scheduled as a hengiform monument. Air photographs suggest that it is partly overlain by a series of small enclosures of uncertain date and function. These are not scheduled.
