Summary

A subtle earthwork of unknown purpose at the foot of Rippon Tor’s north slope. The earthwork is built against the slope to form a rectangle with three sides in situ, measuring 20 metres by 15 metres and with an opening in the north-east corner. The spread condition would suggest this is not a recent feature.
