11 January 1984. Seen on surface of freshly-ploughed field, but field not walked - all observations from roadside.
Three well-defined rectangular patches of bright orange-brown clay, surrounded by broad bands of very dark brown soil, in generally red-brown clay field, in line parallel to B1077.
Look very much like three moated or ditched house sites, each house parallel to B1077.
