Full description

February 2004, Norfolk NMP
A ring ditch is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs (S1). It may form an outlier to the Bronze Age linear barrow cemetery approximately 190m to its south (NHER 38448). It has a single, unbroken ditch which is slightly sub-circular in plan and has a diameter of 14m. An internal pit, presumably a grave pit, is positioned slightly off centre to the ditch.
