Undated possible cropmark enclosures, Tysoe

Description of this historic site

Several possible enclosures of unknown date are visible as a cropmarks on aerial photographs. They are situated 1km north west of Middle Tysoe.

Notes about this historic site

1 Circular crop marks on pasture. Circles of varying size are visible on the ground. Marked thistle growth, within circles but not outside, is visible soon after removal of hay crop.
2 Ground survey undertaken. Three rings, two small, one large, noticed. The large example was visible in 1967-8, but not in 1969. There is some evidence for fungus in the field, but this is not thought to explain the marks.
4 Photos show possible faint features in the locations noted, but these do not appear to represent well-defined rings.
