Earthworks of a curvilinear bank, circa 3.5m wide, which partly encloses a sub-oval hollow, circa 5m long by 4m wide, are visible on visualisations derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017. The earthworks are situated within the remains of a late prehistoric field system (MDV126823) and are therefore interpreted as a possible Bronze Age or Iron Age hut circle.
