HER Number:MDV10046
Name:Cropmarks of Probable Geological Origin

Summary

A network of dark cropmarks is visible on aerial photographs taken between 1959 and 1984. Some appear to form rectilinear shapes previously interpreted as prehistoric enclosures, but they are of irregular width and layout, all appear to interconnect and are considered most likely to have formed over geological features.
