An very circular enclosure, that has had allegations of hengedom levelled in it's direction. It does look as if the ditch is inside the bank, but there's no berm, and only one entrance, to the west. To make matters more confused, an old raiway cutting slices one edge of the earthwork.

It also looked a bit dodgy as it wasn't on a flat platform, it's on the curve of a spur of Ewesly fell, which isn't very hengey from what I know.

There's another earthwork, rectangular, in the trees beyond.
