Although there is little more than a crop mark to see, this is a very interesting site. Aerial survey in 1976 revealed the presence of the largest Neolithic timber building in Britain, dating from around the 4th millenium BC. Excavation revealed a building used to store grains which had burnt down in prehistory, but the postholes & carbonised grain remained to be found.
