Ill defined hollow 5m x4m x 0.4m deep was identified during the survey on Mutter's Moor in 2003. Feature was particularly noticeable due to a change in vegetation cover, as hollow contains grassy hummocks whereas surrounding area under gorse and heather. Feature lies to the east of a small trackway. May be related to WWII military activity.
