Full Description

Single ring ditch or small circular enclosure, circa 43m in diameter, cut by trackway on NW edge, noted from APs (S1). 21 July 1977: NAU, NGR TM 3043 8632, positive cropmark from AP, overlay 3086/C (S3).
July 1998: NGR & mapped location altered from TM 3044 8634 to TM 3046 8635.
A ring ditch of probable Bronze Age date can be seen as a cropmark on aerial photographs, circa 400 metres to the north of Flixton Hall, Flixton parish, centred on circa TM 30448634, partly obscured by an approach road or drive to the Hall. Possibly Bronze Age, however, this feature is in the same approximate location as a parkland clump of trees marked on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of circa 1884, and may therefore be the remains of a tree circle (S5).
