Full description

12 July 1974. NAU air photography.
Cropmark of ring ditch approximately 35m in diameter.
D. Edwards (NAU) 7 May 1980.

S Massey (NNMP) has raised doubts about the age of this feature as it appears to cut the ploughing envelope. However A Hutcheson NLA suggests this could be an illusion caused by the ploughing abutting on a slight rise marking the edge of the circle.
E. Rose (NLA), 24 January 2006.
