Notes

An Iron Age / Roman enclosed settlement site, with associated trackway(s) and possible field enclosures, are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs. The site extends over an area that measures 525m long by up to 355m wide and is orientated south-west / north-east. It comprises a sinuous trackway with rectilinear enclosures conjoined to either side. The trackway is defined by a central hollow and / or several overlapping or parallel linear ditch sections, perhaps indicating a considerable period of use and re-use. Much of its south-eastern side appears to be defined by an alignment of pits. Two rectilinear enclosures are conjoined to its western side and one less well defined enclosure is conjoined to its east. No internal features are visible in the easternmost enclosure, which could suggest it had a different function such as a field. Both of the western enclosures contain pits and the northernmost contains two smaller curvilinear enclosures that probably indicate structures such as huts. A pit alignment is situated 93m to its north-east and a linear ditch with a chamfered corner extends to the south of the trackway, although this could be a later drainage feature. The site is overlain by ploughed out ridge and furrow (SO 93 NW 89).
