Full Description

Settlement site with squared enclosures N of Kembroke Hall (S1). ? Rom. Poorly defined ring ditch(?).
Also Preh.
Field boundaries, tracks and a possible ditched square enclosure of late prehistoric or Roman date can be seen as cropmarks on aerial photographs circa 200 metres to the north of Kembroke Hall, Bucklesham parish, centred approximately on TM265415. A ditched track and the possible corner of a double ditched enclosure can be seen on a roughly north-south orientation. This differs from, and possibly predates, the north-east to south-west orientation taken by a very straight ditched track or road as it approaches a possible large ditched square enclosure. This feature is bisected by a modern track and is only partly visible, but would measure circa 80 metres to a side if complete. Possibly associated field boundaries can be seen to the south-west and east. (S2, S3, S4)
