An irregular cropmark of a possible buried ditch was visible on aerial photographs approximately 130 metres east-south-east of Pye Corner, Upton Pyne. The cropmark has previously been interpreted as a possible single ditched enclosure of unknown date. The cropmark is interpreted here as possibly geological and not archaeological in origin, and has therefore not been transcribed by the NMP survey.
