Full Description

Rectangular enclosure. (1)
Perambulated with the landowner/farmer. The field (now named "the 67 acre") had modern pipe drainage laid in the spring of this year; during this drainage no finds were made that would aid classification and no change was noted in the general soil structure. Now under potatoes there are no surface indications of either enclosure which were possibly stock folds of an unknown period. The topographic situation is high with an open aspect. (2)
Morph: 230.11.1 unknown prehistoric enclosure. (3)
See L 8052 for Ro, Med pottery, L 8053 for flint.
