Full Description

A low rectangular mound, 3m by 2m and up to 0.4m high, surrounded by a ditch up to 0.9m wide and 0.1m deep. The site lies close to an area of peat cutting and may be associated with it – perhaps a storage platform for dried peat? An area of pools, cuttings and amorphous spoil heaps lies just to the NW.
