|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Cropmarks of undated enclosures and linear features, and medieval ring ditches|
Aerial photography from 1996 records the cropmarks of linear features, enclosures and circular marks. The circular marks, which look like faint and narrow ring ditches, are probably the remains of 'stack stands' or 'Riley circles'; circular ditches of a broadly medieval date, presumably used to provide local drainage around small haystacks etc.

22 July 1996. NLA aerial photography.
Cropmarks of linear features, enclosures and circular marks are visible.
The circular marks (faint/narrow ring ditches) are, in the main, probably the remains of 'stack stands' (sometimes called Riley circles), circular ditches of a broadly medieval date, and were presumably to provide local drainage around small haystacks etc.
