Full description

October 2002. Norfolk NMP.
Possible ring ditch visible on Ordnance Survey aerial photographs from 1969 (S1). The circular feature is located at TG 0774 4130 and measures 15m in diameter. The northern arc is obscured by geology. The archaeological origin of this feature is not certain, the mark may itself be geological in origin. However given the fact that is situated within an area of known Bronze Age barrows and ring ditches (NHER 6200 to 6 and 36399 and 17479) then it has been mapped as a possible additional example.
S. Massey (NMP), 23 December 2002.
