Full Description

Complex of earthworks south of Manor Farm to which, access was limited. 50x50m raised platform/terrace with a lower, terraced, NW corner. Steep sloping banks on the north and east sides, approaching 2m in height. 10m wide bank of similar height stretches to the east. An earth mound on the south edge appears to be at least 2m high, though the exact position of this is unclear, as it was only seen from a distance. It seems to rest against the platform edge. (1)
