Full description

5 July 1994. NLA Air Photography.
Single ring ditch visible in field to east of Rudham House Farm.
There are multiple dark anomalies in the immediate area which may be geological but are possibly of anthropogenic origin. Site does appear to be upon a site of geological change or possibly a band of lighter soil.
'Double ditched' anomaly to north may also be 'modern'.
M. Brennand (NLA) 13 February 2001.
