Full description

26 June 1996. NLA air photography.
Cropmark site showing an elongated oval ditch, which is likely to be the remains of a Neolithic long barrow.
Along the same axis to the southwest is a ring ditch/round barrow.
To the west is a double-ditched linear feature, with a clear northern terminus. It is too narrow to be a cursus-like monument and it is probably a trackway with an unusual end feature.

15 July 1996. NLA air photography.
Cropmarks of long barrow, ring ditch, trackway and linears still visible.
