Full description

July 2006. Norfolk NMP.
A cropmark of a faint possible ring ditch, probably a Bronze Age round barrow, is visible on aerial photographs (S1). This cropmark is located at TM 3447 9288. The ring ditch is sub-circular in plan with a narrow ditch and an external diameter of 24m. It is likely that this ring ditch is of Bronze Age date and that it relates to a round barrow. It is situated on a northeast facing slope at approximately 19m OD and appears to be an outlier from a barrow cemetery located further to the north (NHER 44844).
J. Albone (NMP), 10 July 2006.
