A rectilinear enclosure of uncertain date survives as earthworks, within woodland on Skipwith Common, and is visible on air photographs. The enclosure has double and triple-ditched elements and has a possible entrance on the western side, visible on 1948 photographs. Later photographs taken in 1999 show a larger network of ditches, but how much this has been modified by modern drainage is uncertain. The date of this enclosure is unknown, but its form is similar to an Iron Age and Roman rectilinear field system that lies to the north (see SE 63 NE 38), revealed as cropmarks.
