A rectilinear enclosure visible on (S1). At present the site appears to be approximately 37m square, although only three sides are visible on available photography, leaving the enclosure open to the south. The corners are rounded giving it a slightly sub rectangular appearance. The ditches are relatively broad, ranging from 1.5 to 2.5m wide. The date of the site is unknown, although it is morphologically similar to enclosures dating to the Iron Age and Roman periods.
