An additional 3 ring ditches can be identified, one of which is co-joined to the original ring ditch.
A possible fourth new example may be loacted to the north, although it is small and very faint.
A linear fetaure appears to abut up to the co-joined ring ditch.
Also 3 shorth stretches of ditch can be seen, having the appearance of an interrupted ditch.
