A dark curvilinear cropmark, circa 2.5 metres wide and covering an area of approximately 26 by 30 metres, is visible on a single run of aerial photographs taken during 1999. It may have formed over the buried ditch of a former enclosure, of later prehistoric or Roman date. However it is not visible on any other available aerial photographs and is not clearly defined, so interpretation is tentative.
