Full Description

Earthworks comprising a NE-SW aligned sloping bank forming the NW side of a hollow way which runs approx parallel to Brough Lane and may represent an earlier alignment of the lane. A number of faint parallel E-W aligned ridges on the higher area to the W of the bank might indicate former ridge and furrow. An E-W hollow (perhaps a hollow way) cuts across the S corner of the field and is surrounded by a number of irregular mounds and hollows with no discernable pattern. (1)
