13 April 1989.
Circular ditch 18m diameter, 0.30m deep with slight rise inside ditch, about 0.20m high, reported by informant. Under
hummocky grass near stream, never ploughed within knowledge. Two large oak trees (as marked on early Ordnance Survey map) removed during World War Two. Site used by searchlight territorials before but not during war. Too small for a tree ring and never in park land. Most likely a small saucer barrow.
