A ring ditch is visible on aerial photographs as a cropmark circa 100 metres to the south-east of Potash Cottage, centred on circa TM26084108 in Bucklesham parish. The ditch is relatively narrow at under 1.5 metres wide, with a diameter of circa 8 metres. The relatively small proportions of this site do not support an interpretation as a barrow of Bronze Age date and the location of the ring ditch within the area of BUC 008 make a domestic function, possibly as the drip gulley of an Iron Age round house more probable (S1-S3).
