Located on a knoll in an undulating landscape. This is a circular but overgrown area (diam. 32.5m NE-SW) defined by an overgrown earth and stone bank (Wth of base 4.7-6m; int. H 0.5-0.7m; ext. H 1.6-1.9m) separated by a fosse (Wth of top 6-7m; ext. D 0.4-0.7m) from an outer bank (Wth of base 4-4.5m; ext. H 0.4-0.7m) S-W-ENE that is incorporated into a field bank ENE-S.
