At TG 2940 3445 is a rectangular enclosure, which is crossed in its northeast corner by the edge of a large irregular, subcircular enclosure, possibly of late prehistoric date. Within this are two small square enclosures, one at TG 2943 3451 and another at TG 2939 3456. It is possible that these are square barrows, possibly Iron Age in date.
