Located on a slight rise in a little fold of the landscape that is open to the NW. This is a slightly domed (H 0.6-1.1m), circular, and grass-covered area (diam. 39.6m E-W; 36m N-S) defined by an overgrown earthen bank (Wth of base 4.3-6m; int. H 0.2-0.3m; ext. H 1.7m) that is reduced to a scarp S-SW, and an outer fosse (at W: Wth of top 6.5m; ext. D 0.2m). The entrance (Wth of base 2.7m) and causeway (Wth of top 2.9m; H 0.9m) are at ENE.

In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 31 October 2018
