Groundworks, relating to the installation of two wind turbines, lead to the discovery of two ditches. The ditches are undated, set 2.5m apart, and seem to be somewhat parallel, although this could not be confirmed because of the narrow width of the trenches and them cutting the natural. It is suggested that they lie on either side of a boundary hedge. No finds were recovered or observed.
