Cropmarks of a Roman building have been tentatively identified as a villa. It appears to lie inside an Iron Age/Roman rectilinear enclosure that is surrounded by a probably Iron Age/Roman field system. There is a parchmark to the south that may be evidence of another structure. In this field system there are field boundaries, a rectilinear enclosure, trackways, and a pit. There is also a prehistoric/Roman rectilinear enclosure; and three small quarries, a ring ditch, ditch, and a trackway, of uncertain date.
