(S2) describes this as a Roman site perhaps closely associated with NHER 28905. It may be part of the same site. It measures about 100m from east to west and about 75m from north to south. It is quite sharply defined on its northern side. Finds include East Anglian colour coated ware and probably red slipped ware, as well as iron slag, building materials and a spindle whorl.
