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 large double-ditched sub-oval enclosure at Thornton Wood, Ettington is visible as a cropmark on air photographs. It overlies a narrow linear feature which Harding and Lee suggest might be a cursus, although the published photograph is rather inconclusive. They also offer no interpretation of the enclosure beyond the suggestion that it is "unlikely to belong to the henge class". They also state that "field-walking has produced a stone scatter from the area of cropmarking".
