Cropmark ditches, circa 2m wide, which define a rectilinear enclosure, circa 70m across, are visible. The cropmarks are fairly well-defined, with two angular corners to the northeast and northwest. Short sections of linear ditches are faintly visible within the enclosure and may suggest it is double-ditched. The southern extent of the enclosure is not visible and has been bisected by an extant field boundary. Additional cropmark ditches to the northeast may represent associated features.
