|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Cropmark of modern pit or pond|
A C-shaped cropmark visible on aerial photographs was thought to be of archaeological significance, although the possibility that it marked the site of an infilled pit was also suggested. The National Mapping Programme survey has deduced that the cropmark corresponds with the location of a pit or pond depicted on modern maps and other aerial photographs, and consequently is likely to be of negligible archaeological significance.

Cropmark - half a ring ditch visible on (S1).

The C-shaped cropmark (‘half a ring ditch’) described above is visible on aerial photographs (S1), centred at TG 1264 0612. This location corresponds, more-or-less, with that of a pit or pond depicted on recent Ordnance Survey maps, and which is visible as an earthwork on earlier aerial photographs (S3). The cropmark is therefore unlikely to be of any archaeological significance, and it has not been mapped by the NMP.
