A cropmark of ring ditch of probable Bronze Age date is visible on aerial photographs (S1-S2). The ring ditch is circular in plan with a narrow ditch and an external diameter of 16m. It is likely that this ring ditch is of Bronze Age date and that it relates to a round barrow. A former road recorded under this NHER number is recorded separately as NHER 11549.
J. Albone (NMP), 14 November 2007
