Full Description

SS 7657 3547. Two hollow ways were observed in the extreme southeastern corner of the site. These were indistinct features up to 5 metres across and up to 0.75 metres deep, with a surviving length of at least 100 metres. These almost certainly define preenclosure tracks, and probably extended into adjacent fields to the south and east. [1] No features are depicted here on the 1st or 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps.
