Full Description

Site is shown clearly on vertical air survey of 1968 as a spur sticking out of the river. On the east bank are large stones that seem to have been cut. These could be natural. It seems likely that the spur is natural, created as colluvial deposits gathering on the inside meander. Whether this was taken advantage of is unknown. (1)
