Series of low scarps and earthworks in the South-west corner of Field Number 813 on the Tithe Map. The first runs circa 30 metres east-south-east from a slight kink in the western boundary to a small stone dump. Another low scarp runs from the stone dump south-south-west towards the corner of the field. To the south is another slight earthwork that may be the upper boundary of a small enclosure in Field Number 808 on the Tithe Map. These features may be of Prehistoric origin but are largely ploughed out.
