Situated just off the crest of a NE-facing slope. This is a large D-shaped and grass-covered area (dims 50m NE-SW; 45m NW-SE) that slopes down to the NE. It is defined by an earthen bank (at SW: Wth of base 5m; int. H 1.1m; ext. H1m) with some bushes that is incorporated into a NNE-SSW field bank W-NW, and an outer fosse (at SE: Wth of top 8m; Wth of base 2; ext. D 0.7m) that is visible ESE-W.
