Knight, S., 2009, Possible Enclosure in Asheltor Wood (Personal Comment). SDV342927.

Circular feature visible on 1940s aerial photographs, possibly prehistoric hillslope enclosure, though could be landscape feature associated with Langstone Manor House.

Knight, S., 2009, Site Visit for ARCS 15033-15035 (Personal Comment). SDV343130.

Site visit 10/09/09. The area of the enclosure is on a steep slope and unlikely, therefore, to be prehistoric. Possibly the site of a tree ring.
