Full Description

Ring ditch, circa 23m diameter, (single)(S1)(S2).
A ring ditch of unknown date and function is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs, centred on circa TM269442, Newbourne parish. The ditch is circa 1.5 metres wide and encloses an area circa 20 metres in diameter. A similar ring ditch is visible circa 210 metres to the north-west. It is possible that both ring ditches are the remains of round houses of later prehistoric date, and are associated with the trackways visible in the immediate area (see NBN 007 and NBN 020). (S3-5)
