Full description

Small rectilinear ditched enclosure visible as cropmark on dapg ap (nb this appears to be a discrete site from sx89ne6) (silvester card index). Site clearly visible on cuc air photograph. The enclosure has slightly curving sides, a quite broad ditch, and a very clear entrance to the east, and has maximum overall dimensions of c.80m ns and ew. Other cropmarks of a field system on slightly different alignment from the present one are visible, but nothing particular at the ngr of sx89ne/6 (griffith).

A single ditch rectilinear cropmark is visible on aerial photographs (p1-12) . Roughly 48m x 44m, with 5.75m wide entrance in east side. It is likely that this site appears as a duplicated record in the Devon SMR: CIN 9327. The feature was digitally plotted as part of the National Mapping Programme.
