Visited during NLA/RCHM earthwork survey.
Gentle naturally undulating grassland divided by stream. North of stream a headland like bank is evidence to southeast, whilst more centrally a series of rectangular enclosures seen on RAF air photograph are now only clearly defined by one linear depression and irregular undulations with some suggestion of platforms. In field to south, flint masonry with a few medieval bricks are piled, probably out of situ, but adjacent to a headland bank with raised arable to south. A 20m length of flint masonry, provides part of this boundary.
