The oval enclosure recorded from aerial photographs taken in 1946 is visible as a darker area of vegetation. The southern side is clearest, with a diffuse dark margin, though this is irregular and no earthwork features can be discerned. No evidence of this feature is visible on other available imagery and it seems likely that this is not archaeological, so it has not been transcribed.
