Full description

19 July 1996. NLA air photography.
Three ring ditches still visible, a possible fourth example may be sited along the southern field boundary, although its form is quite irregular in comparison to the other ring ditches, suggesting that this new feature may not be related to the Weasenham Barrow group. It is possible it is the remains of a pit or a pond.
S. Massey (NLA), 26 April 2001.
