More information : A large sub-rectangular ditched enclosure is visible on aerial photographs as a cropmark in fields east of Huish Barton, Nettlecombe. Visible as an area of darker crop growth, suggesting a ditch measuring up to 4 metres wide, the enclosure itself measures approximately 55 metres across. There is no visible entrance. The enclosure is bisected by a pathway but the full profile is visible. Its precise date is uncertain, but it may well belong to the later Prehistoric period, possibly the Iron Age. Further survey is required. Two other cropmark enclosures are visible within the same field (see NMR UID 1497792 and 1497802) (1-2).
