Type and Period (2)
A circular earthwork feature circa 45 to 50 metres in diameter and of unknown date and function is visible on the northern slope of Barsham hill on aerial photographs, Barsham parish, centred approximately on TM 407897. The feature appears to be cut into the slope of the hill and may be the remains of an extractive pit or quarry, possibly a sand pit. An alternative interpretation is as the remains of a tree ring, such as is marked in this general area on Hodskinson's map of 1783. However the accuracy of Hodskinson's map at this scale is relatively poor and the tree ring may have actually been situated some distance to the north-east, closer to Roos Hall. (S1-S3)
