Small oval (subrectangular ?) feature containing circle. (1)
All markings now fall under root crop. Extensively perambulated but only normal field debris seen together with sherds of C18/C19 pottery. Topographically the marks fall adjacent to the 50ft contour slightly above the Trent river meadows. The enclosures / ditches are probably Ro in origin, although a Preh date is not impossible. (2)
Morph: 199.32.1 enclosure. (3)
