Type and Period (2)
The remains of a possible round barrow of Bronze Age date can be seen as the cropmark of a ring ditch on aerial photographs, centred on circa TM29663661 to the north-west of Hill House Cottages, Felixstowe parish. The ring ditch is circa 1.5 metres wide and 10 metres in diameter. The cropmark bears greater resemblance to two ring ditches of different sizes to the north-east, interpreted as probable barrow ditches, (see FEX 256-FEX 257) than the probable round house cropmarks to the east (FEX 097-098). However it could be the remains of a round house of Iron Age or Roman date. (S1)
