A small oval enclosure or ring ditch of Neolithic or later prehistoric to Roman date is visible on aerial photographs of the 1980s onwards as a cropmark circa 230 metres to the east-north-east of Netherexe Barton, Nether Exe. The visible cropmark is 2 to 3 metres wide and encloses an area approximately 11 to 18 metres in size. The function of the cropmark is not known, but it falls within the area of a much larger possible ditched enclosure, of possible Neolithic to Bronze Age or earlier date, but with which it might be associated.
