Full Description

This semicircular feature was identified from lidar data. Initial field inspection could not locate earthworks, therefore the area was geophysically surveyed to assess whether the feature was archaeological. The survey data did not find indications of an enclosure, but suggests that the feature may be 'formed' from peat cuttings and a drainage ditch. [1]
