Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A large, c.270m in diameter cropmark is clearly visible at this location on Google imagery dating to both 2000 and 2009. Some type of feature is also obvious on recent LiDAR imagery. 'This feature is quite possibly a natural structure created by palaeochannels of the Trent. However, several aspects of both the photographic and LiDAR data suggest it is worth noting. In particular, a complete circular depression of varying depth is visible on LiDAR, and a complete circular crop mark is visible on photography.' (1)
