Site Description Cropmarks show a single ring ditch, sited towards one side of a rectangular field enclosure showing as cropmarks, discovered during RCAHMW aerial reconnaissance on 29th June 2009. On a subsequent flight on 3rd May 2011 (frames: AP_2011_1588-1595) a further pair of barrow cropmarks were visible in an adjacent field, apparently bisected by a further cropmarked boundary ditch with a rounded corner. The cropmarked field boundaries appear to have considerable antiquity.
