A pale oval cromark visible was visible on the north-facing slopes south of Stenstone Farm, Upton Pyne, on aerial photographs of 1946. The cropmark measured approximately 70 metres by 40 metres in size. It is possible that the cropmark was evidence for a levelled earthwork mound or mounds of prehistoric date, potentially part of the Upton Pyne Barrow group, which is recorded to the east and south. The cropmark was not noted on later aerial photographs available to the survey.
