Evidence of a possible ring ditch was visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs of 1966 on the south-west facing spur south-west of Tub Corner, Broadclyst. The cropmark is circa 3.5 metres wide and encloses an area approximately 25 metres in diameter. A gap of approximately 17 metres is visible in the eastern side of the possible ring-ditch.
The date and function of the possible ring-ditch are unknown and further investigation by non-invasive techniques, such as geophysical survey, is recommended to ascertain the nature and extent of the feature.
