A subrectangular dark cropmark, circa 2.5 metres in width and covering approximately a third of a hectare, is visible on aerial photographs taken in 1946. It is sited on the northern slopes of a hilltop on which a banked prehistoric enclosure is located (MDV59065), and may be a later-prehistoric or Romano-British enclosure. However, it is only visible on a single run of aerial photographs, so interpretation is tentative.
