Full Description

One hollow way starts modestly in the east behind the vicarage, but becomes a massive cutting (it could almost be seen as a defensive ditch) in its widening approaches to Halam House Farm. A large mound sits by the mouth of the deep hollow way. A large elongated mound is set in the orchard, east of L5499. Ridge and furrow behind the vicarage is flanked by more terraced areas. (1)
