Notes about this historic site

1 Photographs show three sides of a probable rectangular enclosure formed of banks. The enclosure is divided into three by internal banks and is situated on a N facing slope. Its extreme regularity almost suggests a recent date, although there is no obvious explanation for the enclosure. At the top of the field the banks are cut by a hollow way which follows the field boundary.
3 The enclosures also show on air photographs, although these do not help to interpret the site.
