Remains of a large field scarp aligned north-east to south-west with a low bank and some orthostats at the west end. The 2 metre wide bank forms a dogleg at the west end to run north to the northern field boundary. The scarp is 1.2 metres high by up to 3 metres wide with some large rocks built on it. The feature is shown on 19th century maps and is almost certainly Medieval and possibly Prehistoric in date. At the east end it may continue as the boundary beteewn two fields to the east.
