Full description

April 2002. Norfolk NMP.
Cropmark of ring ditch, visible on 1946 RAF aerial photographs (S1). It is 15m in diameter and the ditch is approximately 1.5m wide. The ditch may have a very slight earthwork element to it. It has a very distinct causeway, 6m wide to the west. Its date and function are uncertain. It is possible that it is Bronze Age, however it may be of quite recent origin.
