Enclosure visible on the aerial photography. A bold circular cropmark measuring 44 metres (west-east), by 37 metres (north-south) with a very faint possible circular feature within it, measuring 12 metres by 13 metres, lies at SX75119124. This is surrounded by a larger cropmark measuring 99 metres (west-east), by approximately 67 metres (north-south). Another possible circular feature is visible at SX75119118. A larger roughly oval-shaped cropmark surrounds all the above mentioned features, measuring approximately 250 metres (north-west by south-east) by 130 metres (west-east) at the widest southern end. The other extents of this feature are not definitive and a faint possible curving feature may be visible in field to the east.
