Full description

18 July 1996. NLA aerial photography.
Very large, almost perfectly circular ring ditch visible to immediate east of Mill House Farm. Small circular anomaly in centre may suggest a disc barrow, but has a strangely 'modern' feel. To the east is a concentric, hengiform ring ditch which is probably the site of post mill NHER 13104.
Additional linear features are field boundaries.
M. Brennand (NLA), 3 December 2001.
