Element record L8398 - ENCLOSURE AT FARNDON




Grid reference Centred SK 77694 52791 (74m by 55m)
Map sheet SK75SE
District Newark
Civil Parish Farndon, Newark


Type and Period (1)

Full Description

Sub-rectangular enclosure. (1)
All cropmarks are now under low cereal. The crop height is quite level apart from natural ground undulations and there is nothing to be seen of the enclosures. Perambulation produced only normal modern field debris. The area has an open aspect but is adjacent to the Trent on a flood plain and any occupation would probably be resticted to the summer and autumn only. Probably forms a part of the extensive IA/Ro profile in this area. (2)
See L3018 for associated crop marks.
