A cairn field with some substantial mounds upto half a metre high and an intrigueing double ditch most of which has been cut through by modern roads. The site is in a well maintained wooded modern enclosure. Two fields down there is a possibility that this double ditch continues, but I am not sure yet. daveyravey Posted by daveyravey
