This record has been generated from an "old county number" (OCN) scheduling record. These are monuments that were not reviewed under the Monuments Protection Programme and are some of our oldest designation records. As such they do not yet have the full descriptions of their modernised counterparts available.
A multi-period prehistoric cropmark site comprising part of a cursus (100m wide and at least 500m long) ring ditches, a cluster of pennanular ditches, pits and superimposed field systems and enclosures. Professor St Joseph notes that "several of the circular features show clear signs of an entrance, but seem too large to be interpreted as the sites of Iron Age or Romano-British round huts. They perhaps represent small ditched enclosures within which individual houses may have stood". It is possible that on at least some of the circular feature s is a class 1 henge. < 1>
