Full description

27 July 1988. NAU air photography.
Cropmark of straight sided enclosure, long in relation to its width but overall quite small, with what appears to be two tiny circles at each of the northern corners. Suggested as a long barrow by D. Edwards (NLA).
E. Rose (NLA), 18 May 1993.

November 2004.
[1] states that there was a trackway through this field, as seen on (S1), which lines up precisely with the cropmarks on (S2), and they may have been foundations for a wall on either side of the drive's last section as it led up to the lodge gates.
J. Allen (NLA), 1 December 2004.
