Full Description

Ring ditch. Single circle, circa 30m diameter, W of ring ditch group (BUC 002, 003, 021-023) & within cropmark complex BUC 012 (S1)(S2). Formerly part of BUC 012.
The site of a possible Round Barrow of Bronze Age date is visible as a crop mark ring ditch at circa TM234418, Foxhall parish. The ditch appears to be between 1.5 and 2.5 metres in width and encloses an area up to 34 metres in diameter. The ring ditch is to the east of the cropmark complex BUC 012, but probably predates the field system. It may be part of a cemetary complex located circa 200 metres to the east (see BUC 002, 003, 021-023). (S4)
