Full Description

Various cropmark features were identified as part of the New National Forest Project and mapped using good quality aerial photographs. They include three incomplete subcircular enclosures of probable prehistoric date, each c. 18m in diameter and defined by a ditch. Centred at:- SK 2285 2989 (Morph No. FR.98.6.1), SK 2290 2977 (Morph No. FR.98.6.2) and SK 2285 2978 (Morph No. FR.98.6.3). In addition, a possible prehistoric enclosure was recorded, seen as an interrupted single linear feature, defined by a ditch, with a maximum length of 70m, centred at SK 2288 2978 (Morph No. FR.98.6.4) and probable prehistoric pits seen as six very small (<1m) round negative features, in a linear pattern, centred at:- SK 2284 2976 (Morph No. FR.98.6.5). A probable cropmark macula of unknown date was seen as a medium size (14-15m) amorphous negative feature. Centred at:- SK 2285 2981 (Morph No. FR. 98.7.1)(1)
