Full description

Environment Agency WMS, 2019, LiDAR DSM data (1m resolution), 2019 (Cartographic). SDV362957.

Lidar survey data shows what appears to be an oval enclosure measuring 60m north-west to south-east, by 37m north-east to south-west, with a single large hut circle (13m diameter) attached to the north-eastern boundary of the enclosure. Later field boundaries overlie (or perhaps have reused) the northern and western boundaries of the enclosure, obscuring the outline.
Not recorded by the 1985 Aerial Photograph Project or later National Mapping Programme work in the area; not easily visible on the aerial photographs.
