Rectangular shaped field to the north west of ‘Trowlesworthy Warren Farm’. The enclosure originally included the squarish field to the north which was separated from it in 20th century. The western and northern boundaries of the larger enclosure are considered to be of early Medieval origin and the eastern boundary is a slightly later Medieval boundary. The southern boundary was originally the northern boundary of a prehistoric enclosure which remained as the boundary until after 1904 when the south-eastern corner was squared off.
