Description : Earthwork is grass covered & is situated in low lying land. No visible remains of an entrance or of internal habitations though the interior surface is uneven. Lowest level of western end of ditch contained small amount of exclusively Roman pottery, upper levels were contained Roman and medieval pottery. Southern section of main enclosure ditch was steep sided with a flat bottom. Lower levels were filled with silt suggesting a period of disuse and no pottery sherds. Upper fill contained large amount of pottery ranging from Roman to post medieval and was almost certainly deposited deliberately in order to level the ground above the ditch. There were other structures and features associated with this site (see report for more details).
