Full Description

Extensive system of irregular and rectangular enclosures; also broad dark features in rectangular patterns. Some geological features. (1)
These marks are almost certainly caused through natural cracking of the sub-strata. Not an antiquity. (2)
Fieldwalked 12-17/11/1978. No finds to suggest any period of settlement. Suggest this and L1535-6 are geological. Limestone pieces on surface suggest bedrock is close to surface and rectangular cracking is characteristic of this rock. (3) (4)
