Situated on top of a drumlin. This is a subcircular grass and scrub-covered area (dims 25m NW-SE; c. 22m NE-SW) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 3.2-3.5m; int. H 0.4-0.8m; ext. H 1.3m at NW to 2.2m at SE) and hedge. The interior is overlain by a NNE-SSW field bank towards the perimeter at SE, and the external fosse, probably re-cut as a drain (Wth of top 4.4m; Wth of base 2.2m; ext. D 0.6m), is only evident E of this feature. The original entrance is not identified.
