Bronze Age cross dyke aligned south west to north east across the spine of a spur which slopes down to the north. It is one of four similar sites situated on the edge of the plateau. possibly associated with the contemporary settlement at Ringmoor, 850 metres to the south east. The cross dyke is 70 metres long and has a bank 8 metres wide and 1 metre high with a ditch on its uphill southern side 5 metres wide and up to 1 metre deep. At both ends the dyke runs out short of the shoulder of the spur and the eastern end is cut by the ditch of a modern hedge. The dyke has been truncated near its centre by a former track.
