MONUMENT NO. 1230625

DESCRIPTION + /

A possible prehistoric or Roman settlement and field system may be represented by a series of ditched boundaries visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs. The boundaries form a system of fragmentary, conjoined rectilinear enclosures. An incomplete rectangular enclosure, measuring 12m across, could be the remains of a building. The cropmarks, some of which may be of different phases, extend over an area measuring 700m by 450m. It is possible that some of the cropmarks may relate to much later features, possibly Medieval or Post medieval field boundaries. These features are located in an area of gravel extraction and so it is possible that some may have been destroyed. Two Bronze Age round barrows (described in SU 67 SE 72) are visible in the vicinity but appear to be unrelated to the settlement/field system.
