Notes about this historic site

1 Aerial photograph.
2 Aerial photographs show a small circular enclosure. The site visit showed that the area was under arable crops and so the enclosure was not visible. Apparently, holes were drilled throughout the area before the nearby coalmine was established. These holes were left as ponds for many years, but more recently were filled in. Possibly the cropmark (enclosure) is one of these.
