|Name:||Cropmarks of ring ditch and possible Roman field system|
A ring ditch, probably dating to the Bronze Age, is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs. Several linear features are also visible as cropmarks and they may be related to a nearby Roman settlement, NHER 10178, and possible field system, NHER 36354.

Cropmark of ring ditch clearly visible, it is likely that it represents the remains of a Bronze Age barrow.
Surrounding this are several linear ditches, these probably relate to part of a field system. Proximity to a Roman site (NHER 10178) may indicate a similar date.
