Cropmarks of levelled ditches are visible on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards, on gentle northeast facing slopes of a spur to the southwest of Pease Park Farm, Staverton. The dark cropmarks form three sides of a rectilinear enclosure which measures approximately 65m in length by 55m in width and is bisected by an un-named road. Its form and proximity to other enclosures identified in this area would suggest a late prehistoric or Romano-British date.
