Notes about this historic site

1 Visible as a crop mark on aerial photographs.
2 An ‘L’-shaped crop mark is probably part of a wide-ditched rectangular enclosure. An entrance is visible in the NE corner. A linear gully lies to the N of the possible wide-ditched enclosure, and a possible penannular gully is situated just to the NE. The penannular gully could be Iron Age or Roman.
3 Dating revised to within the Neolithic and Post Medieval periods.
4 Morphologically, it is possible that this site is a Roman camp, just down the River from Mancetter.Other cropmark features are visible in the vicinity, but it is possible that these are geological in origin.
