Full Description

Linear cropmarks (S1) N of TYN 011 and W of KIR 008.
Ditched trackways and possible field boundaries of probable prehistoric or medieval date are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs to the south-east of Croft Farm, Kirton parish, centred on circa TM27043926. Two possible phases of features may be visible. Tracks and boundaries can be seen running roughly south-east to north-west, on a similar alignment to the surrounding modern field boundaries. A second phase may be indicated by a linear ditch running south-west to north-east. It is unclear which of the two is earlier. The area of this record previously included a field of circa 9.3 hectares to the north. However this area has been reduced as in the opinion of this interpreter, the cropmark features visible in this area, with the exception of the ring ditch KIR 054, are probably non-archaeological in origin.
