Full Description

Small, single ring ditch in field adjacent to field system, TYN 013, and ring ditch, TYN 046. Diameter c. 15m (S1). Possibly part of field system/tofts to the NE, TYN 067 (S2).
A ring ditch of approximately 14 metres diameter is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs centred circa on TM26623806, between the railway line and High Road to the west of Trimley St Martin. The cropmark of the ditch is less than 1 metre in width, suggesting it was a relatively slight earthwork, possibly the drip gulley surrounding a late prehistoric or Roman date round house. It may be associated with the field system and ring ditches to the south (TYN 013, TYN 046) (S3)
