Full description

10 August 1978. Aerial photography by Aerial Archaeology Foundation.
Positive cropmark.
One ring ditch.
D. Edwards (NAU) 10 February 1983.

Possibly an infilled pit but not definitely so.
E. Rose (NAU) 21 February 1983.

I have looked at the 1946 RAF aerial photographs under my stereoscope and there is a very large depression on this site. Certainly is an infilled pit and not a ring ditch, as we thought. There is no need to visit the site.
D. Edwards (NLA) 13 October 1997.
