Full Description

A series of E-W linear gullies and banks run E across the field from the E side of Catchwater Drain. A more substantial E-W bank separates the front of the field from the rear part, which contains E-W aligned ridge and furrow. A low platform at the front of the field, fringed by a hedge and marked as a small enclosure on the OS map, contains the last traces of a brick-built structure. (1)
The earthworks and ridge and furrow were visible during a field survey by AMEC in 2009. (4)
