Full Description

Complex of contiguous and intersecting subrectangular enclosures. (1)
Under cereal crop. The crop height is regular and undisturbed, indicating a fairly level ground surface. Perambulation produced only normal modern field debris. The enclosures are almost certainly minor croftings denoting ribbon development of Averham. (2)
Morph: 193.7.1 trackway, 193.8.1 enclosure. (3)
Numerous modern ploughmarks could be seen cutting down into the subsoil. No archaeological features discovered in either of the trenches.(4)
