The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. 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.


A Roman building platform and a pair of lynchets which may suggest an enclosure are visible as earthworks on aerial photographs. These lynchets may define an enclosure of some shape, and are likely to be contemporary with the building platform. Pottery of the 3rd and 4th centuries and fragments of opus signinum have also been recovered. This site is likely to be contemporary with Compton Grove Roman villa located 115 metres to the south west (SP 01 NW 13). This site has been mapped from aerial photographs as part of the Cotswolds Hills National Mapping Programme.
