Full description

Ring ditch.
Also linear cropmark continuing line of track from TF 8025 4223, and two linear marks running northwest to southeast.

May 2002. Norfolk NMP.
Site NHER 12149 now only refers to the ring ditch (NGR corrected from original TF 8040 4230), the trackway is now recorded as NHER 26992.
The ring ditch is 25m across and the ditch is 1.5m wide and is visible on NLA obliques from 1976 (S1). It is situated on the higher slopes of a slight spur, at 45m OD. The morphology and its landscape setting suggest that it is a Bronze Age barrow site.
