2 A double ditched rectangular enclosure about 60m x 30m with a narrow entrance through both ditches on the SE. Inside the enclosure are two adjoining enclosures – one penannular gully with an entrance to the SE and one irregular. Also inside the enclosure is a scatter of pits. Also traces of a possible field system exist to the S (MWA6291). On morphological grounds this site is probably of Iron Age date.
