Located at the base of a gently rounded hillock (H c. 3m) on the floor of a N-S valley with a canalised N-S stream c. 80m to the E and a disused N-S rail line immediately to the E. It is not marked on any OS map but it is visible on aerial photographs (GSIAP: N 669, 670). This is an oval grass-covered area (dims 61.5m N-S; 51m E-W) defined by a fosse (at SE: Wth of top 5m; ext.
