Full Description

Parallel linear features and a small square enclosure. Possible ring ditches. (1)
A series of poorly defined linear ditches or gullies, including a possible single ditched enclosure of long quadrilateral form and, to its W, the vestiges of what may be a rectilinear boundary system. The "enclosure" is defined by ditches on 3 sides, poss c 30m x 20m, with possible entrances. Also an approx N-S ditch cutting/cut by the boundary. Other features on the same alignments suggest an extensive system. Also traces of a penannular gully, c 10m diameter. (3)
