Full Description

Complex rectilinear field system. There are two ring ditches in the area of the system but neither is respected by the system, the larger (COR 015) is crossed by ditches, the smaller (COR 016) is in a blank area (S1).
Field system with probable trackways visible on aerial photographs of 1976 (S2,S3) and 1977 (S4). Larger ring ditch visible on these photos, but smaller one is not. Another possible curvilinear features is visible at TM53099832, but it is not clear what the exact nature of this feature is.
The field system cropmarks appear to continue into the field directly to the north on a photograph of 1996 (see COR 012) (S5) and is probably related to cropmarks visible in a field to the south west but these are out of the area of the current project (see S6 and COR 003).
