November 2007. Norfolk NMP.
A cropmark of a ring ditch of possible Bronze Age date is visible on aerial photographs ((S1)-(S2)). The ring ditch is circular in plan with a narrow ditch and an external diameter of 17m. It is likely that this ring ditch is of Bronze Age date and that it relates to a round barrow. The trackway previously recorded under this HER number is now recorded separately as NHER 50694.
J. Albone (NMP), 16 November 2007.
