|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Possible Roman enclosure and multi-period pottery|
Rectangular enclosures of unknown date are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs. Prehistoric flint implements, and pottery dating from the Iron Age to the post medieval periods, found by fieldwalking. The Roman finds recovered from the site seem to be associated with the cropmark enclosures, suggesting that they may be of Roman date.
