Mapping amended using (S1). Original mapping did not take in the correct location of the ring ditch which is located at TG19843691. Linear cropmarks appear to include field boundaries either side of the ring ditch which have been excluded from the polygon. An L-shaped cropmark on a slightly different alignment to the more modern field boundaries is included.
