Summary

A rectilinear enclosure, approximately one metre wide and 35 by 35 metres in visible extent, is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs taken between 1975 and 1992. Its southern side is not visible, and the western side is curvilinear, giving it an unusual shape. A nearby probable Romano-British enclosure (MDV113011) could be contemporary, although a later prehistoric date is also quite possible.
This feature was originally recorded as part of MDV10043, which contains details of additional aerial photograph sources relating to this extensive area of field system and cropmark enclosures.
