Full Description

An earthwork bank centred on circa SS 71663644. The function of the bank is uncertain but it appears to be associated with a quarry and trackway and it is possible it represents land-division for the purposes of stone extraction. The bank does not appear to extend beyond the area of the plantation. (1)
