A cropmark of a ring ditch, probably a Bronze Age round barrow, is visible on aerial photographs (S1-S4). The central grid reference for this cropmark has been adjusted from TF 7244 3545 to TF 7242 3546. The ring ditch is sub-circular in plan with a ditch of up to 4m wide and an external diameter of 29m. It is likely that this ring ditch is of Bronze Age date and that it relates to a round barrow. It is located on the north facing slope of a small valley at approximately 31m OD. Another ring ditch cropmark is located 470m to the northeast (NHER 11895).
