A pale D-shaped cropmark, circa 2 metres wide and enclosing an area of approximately 35 by 40 metres, is visible on a single run of aerial photographs taken in summer 1963. It is interpreted as having formed over the buried remains of an infilled enclosure ditch of likely later prehistoric or Roman date. A possible outer ditch, parallel and circa 2 to 4 metres from the inner circuit, is visible as an interrupted pale cropmark.
