Full Description

NMR Information:

A group of conjoined rectilinear ditched enclosures, which are probably Iron Age or Roman in date, are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs taken in 2001. The site comprises at least four conjoined rectilinear enclosures which extend over an area that is centred at SE 6200 4915 and measures 170m long by 155m wide and is orientated roughly NNW / SSE. Several of the enclosures are nearly square and measure between 30m and 40m wide. A section of trackway, defined by two roughly parallel sinuous ditches, is situated to their north-east around SE 6202 4922. Several pits are dispersed through the site.

The site has a different alignment to that of more possible field system enclosures situated circa 300m to their south and recorded as SE 64 NW 10 (UID: 1073802), suggesting they formed parts of different systems. (1)
