Full description

1976. Three ring ditches in south of field along edge of wood. The two to the east are partially superimposed.
The one to the west is larger, with internal feature.
Checked by E. Rose (NAU), 19 October 1976.

Site visited 10 March 1978.
Area is a low lying wet pasture. The rings are visible as very low earthworks (ditches).

The most westerly is the most prominent and is 10m in diameter.
These are probably drainage gullies to surround fodder stalls or huts and are almost certainly modern.
A.J. Lawson (NAU).
