Type and Period (2)
? Ring ditch, circa 22m in diameter, rectilinear field system. See also Med.
Two ring ditches are visible as cropmarks close to the fragmentary cropmarks of a possible ditched field boundary and trackway, centred on circa TM29163598, in a field between Candlet Road and High Street in Walton, Felixstowe. The easternmost ring ditch is centred on circa TM29163598, has a very narrow ditch at less than 1 metres wide and is approximately 13 metres in diameter. The westernmost is at TM29213598, has a slightly wider ditch at up to 1.5 metres width and is circa 23 metres in diameter. The possible track is visible for circa 20 metres and is roughly 2 metres wide. Both ring ditches and linear features are situated on an area of potentially deeper soils that is showing cropmarks differently to the rest of the field. A probably medieval or post-medieval sand pit can be seen as a cropmark in the same area but has not been transcribed. (S1, S2)
