Details of site on Pastscape

SP 576849 Recent re-examination of a cropmark on J Pickering's aerial photographs (NMR SP 5784/4-10) has led to the identification of what appears to be a long mortuary enclosure or a plough razed long barrow. The crop mark is lozenge-shaped, is orientated northeast/southwest and has dimensions of c. 15 x 80 metres. No certain break or entrance causeway is visible in the ditch which appears to be regular and no more than c. 2 metres wide. There is nothing visible on the ground.
