Site Description NAR SR99SE6

An enclosure complex, extending about 120m NNW-SSE by 60m, the various features being defined by low (up to 0.4m high) stony banks; at the centre of the complex, as mapped by RCAHMW (1979), is a circular structure, some 8.0m across, opening into a roughly 17.5m diameter enclosure on the east: examination of the latter enclosure showed that it had been constructed over an earlier shell-midden (Benson 1978); the site has produced much worked flint, along with iron-slag & possibly spindlewhorls: the complex, occupying a north-facing promontory, can apparently be linked to a wider pattern of relict field enclosure, although this is not certain (Benson et al. 1990, 208).
