Full description

November 2004. Norfolk NMP.
Cropmarks of an incomplete double ring ditch are visible on aerial photographs (S1-2). The southern half of a double concentric ring ditch cropmark is located at TG 3369 3455. The inner ring has a diameter of 28m with the outer ring measuring 40m. It is possible that this cropmark represents a large Bronze Age ring ditch or round barrow. A roughly circular positive cropmark with a diameter of 24m, located 60m further to the south, could represent a second ring ditch (S1).
(S1-2)
