A cropmark of a ring ditch, probably a Bronze Age round barrow, is visible on aerial photographs (S1). This cropmark is located at TM 3433 9311. The ring ditch has a sub-circular plan with a narrow ditch and an external diameter of 15m. 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 south facing slope at approximately 21m OD and forms part of a barrow cemetery (NHER 44844).
