Cropmark of an undated ring ditch with three internal pits, possibly a Bronze Age round barrow, plotted from aerial photographs (S1)-(S3). The ring ditch has an external diameter of 20m and a ditch width of just over 1m. The three internal pits may represent graves. The course of a trackway, probably relating to an Iron Age of Roman field system (NHER 38576), respects this ring ditch, suggesting that it was an extant monument at that time. Other ring ditches of probable round barrows are located to the south of this site NHER 38542, 38543, 38549.
