Full Description

An unrecorded oval enclosure was noted in 0.5m Lidar data provided by the Environment Agency at SS 87890 47128. It appears to be demarked by a ditch, roughly 9 to 10 metres wide. The long axis (east to west) is approximately 138 metres whereas the north to south axis appears to have been truncated by a modern field boundary at approximately 90 metres. The enclosure seems to underlie any agricultural lineaments. [1]
