The cropmark of ring ditch of probable Bronze Age date, is visible on NLA oblique aerial photographs from 1988 (S1-2). This site is centred on TG 0930 4128 and is likely to represent the remains of a Bronze Age round barrow. The ring ditch measures 18m in diameter and the ditch is up to 1m wide. On the BKS aerial photographs from 1988 (S3) the parchmark of the remains of the barrow mound can be seen, measuring 8.5m across. The linear to the north of the feature was not mapped, as it appears to be a post medieval field boundary.
