Full description

Late 2003. Earthwork Survey.
Site 5 (The Thicket):
Series of banks and flanking ditches. Most likely to be later than the existing woodland boundaries, the one notable exception is the westernmost SSW-NNE aligned features, which is the most prominent and appears to cut the northern boundary of The Thicket.
Site 6:
Series of four ridges flanking and to the north of a very degraded sinous channel which looks to be an earlier watercourse. The nature of these features is uncertain.
See report (S1) for further details. The results of this survey are also noted in (S2).
Amended by P. Watkins (HES), 10 June 2015.
