A pale circular ring circa 11 metres in diameter is visible on aerial photographs taken in July 1946. When viewed in stereo the mark appears to be an area of bare ground, perhaps the site of a temporary structure for a summer event. It is not visible on earlier aerial photographs and is unlikely to have a WWII date. It is recorded as it could be mistaken for an archaeological feature.
