Site Description


A bank and ditch define the east and south-eastern sides of an enclosure thought to have been in the region of 100m ENE-WSW by 50m, having a counterscarp to the east, resting on steep natural slopes on the north-west.
The general form of the site would suggest an late prehistoric origin, but its relationship with the Roman marching camp (Nprn301344), within which it is encompassed, is uncertain.
