More information : A ditched enclosure of probable later prehistoric date is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs, approximately 200 metres to the south-west of Tivington Farm, at circa SS 929454, Selworthy parish. The cropmark of the ditch is approximately four metres wide and defines an enclosure which is roughly D shaped or pentagonal in plan, measuring up to 80 metres across internally. It is not possible to identify an entrance with certainty but one may be apparent on the southern edge of the enclosure on 1946 photography. Hints of linear features abutting the enclosure to the north and south may indicate the remains of associated field systems but these cropmarks are unclear and may be caused by modern agricultural activity or agricultural improvements, such as the narrow ridge and furrow ploughing also visible on the 1946 photography.
