Cropmarks of levelled ditches are visible on oblique aerial photographs taken in 1996, to the north of Lane End Cross, Woodland. The dark curvilinear cropmarks, circa 3m in with, form part of an oval enclosure, circa 40m across, with a possible entranceway to the northeast. The enclosure has been dissected by two field boundaries. Its form and proximity to other enclosures identified in this area would suggest a prehistoric date.
