Full Description

Large linear bank, up to 5m wide, 1m high, crossing fields to N and S of main road, with a break just to N of the road, which appears to form a protected entry point. Both banks turn 120 degrees back to the N-W, to run behind and parallel to the N arm. To E of this feature, on N side of the road, a large rectangular hollow is covered in E-W R and F. A large promontory of higher ground protudes into this area from the W. N-S R and F covers the E side of field. S of road, E-W R and F covers most of field, with 2 lands running N-S along the E edge. 2 linear banks cross the N-E corner, which is low lying and flooded, reputedly because of mining subsidence, a factor that must be taken into account when assessing the features described.
