Full description

18 July 1996. NLA air photography.
Relatively large, double ring ditch visible with unusual square 'pit' like anomaly between the ditches (possibly natural).
To the northeast is a smaller single ring ditch.
These are probably prehistoric.
The linear features appear to be part of a field system that is widespread in this area, not on alignment with modern boundaries, and possibly Roman in date.
M. Brennand (NLA), 3 December 2001.

August 2012.
The field system previously recorded under this number is now recorded under NHER 57991.
S. Horlock (HES), 30 August 2012.

The mapped extent of this record has been reduced to better reflect the locations of the ring-ditches (now that they are the only features documented under this number) [1].
The double ring-ditch is clearly visible on (S2) and it is also possible to identify the smaller ring-ditch to the north-east.
P. Watkins (HES), 26 July 2021.
