Type and Period (4)
Ring gullys and double gully enclosures noted on the site. Also three large pit like features interpreted as watering holes to collect water for any livestock. Discussions with the main contractor suggested
an aquifer is present running roughly adjacent to the east of the A1237 road. This would
explain the localised water table and remarkably well-preserved organic deposits discovered
towards the base of these watering holes. Additionally, the grouping of these features
suggests that this spring-line has ancient origins.
