Full description

June 2007. Norfolk NMP
A cropmark of an incomplete ring ditch of probable Bronze Age date is visible on aerial photographs (S1-S3). This cropmark is centred on TG 3259 0101. The ring ditch is circular in plan with a narrow ditch and an external diameter of 16m. It is likely that it is of Bronze Age date and that it relates to a round barrow. It is possible that it forms an outlier to the Bronze Age barrow cemetery 275m to its southwest (NHER 49491).
