A possible enclosure of unknown date was visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs of 1984 on the gentle slopes to the north-east of Poltimore House. The cropmarks are slight, but might support the interpretation that they are forming over a ditch defined enclosure 20 to 25 metres square. The cropmarks might correspond with some landscape features recorded as part of MDV108229.
