28 June 1996. NLA air photography.
Cropmark of a ring ditch located at TG 0039 4378. It is likely to be a Bronze Age barrow ditch.
Several linears run up to this barrow, these appear to be part of a field system or set of enclosed areas, possibly Late Iron Age/Roman in date.

November 2002. Norfolk NMP.
A cropmark of a ring ditch is clearly visible. It is located at TG 0038 4367. It has a diameter of about 30-35m. This may well be the remains of a Bronze Age barrow. It is visible on NLA 1996 aerial photographs (S1) and on Environment Agency aerial photographs from 2002 (S2).
Several linear features appear to run up to (and through) this barrow, these are however much fainter and less distinct than the cropmark of the ring ditch. These features are of uncertain date and origin, though they are possibly part of a field system or set of enclosed areas, of perhaps Late Iron Age/Roman date.
H. Clare (NMP), 27 November 2002.
