Full description

March 2004. Norfolk NMP
An undated cropmark of a possible incomplete ring ditch is visible on RAF aerial photographs (S1). It has a 25m diameter with a narrow single ditch. An opening appears to be present on its southern side, although this may be a result of the way that the cropmark has formed. It is not certain that this cropmark is of archaeological origin, but if it is it may relate to a Bronze Age round barrow. The grid reference listed is for the centre of this cropmark. A flint scraper has previously been discovered just to the east of the cropmark (NHER 36644)
J. Albone (NMP), 24 March 2004.
