"The east half of the ditch circuit of a small sub-rectangular enclosure is revealed as a crop mark; it surrounds a single earth-fast stone. Only one other similar stone occurs in the immediate neighbourhood, just to the north east in the cleared wood, and there may be parallel here with other enclosed stones such as the Menhir de Guerande in France.
