Situated on a fairly level landscape. Archaeological monitoring (98E0352) by Donald Murphy of topsoil removal in the N borrowing area of a mining development identified four spreads of burnt mound material and other features that were completely excavated by the same archaeologist under the same license ( 1999:708). Area 2 consisted of a narrow spread of broken and burnt stone (dims 12m N-S; 4m E-W; max. T 0.28m) within a hollow cut into the boulder clay. A rectangular trough (dims 2.5m; 1.1m; D 0.44m) filled with black charcoal-rich silt and burnt mound material had a single wooden plank (dims 1.4m x 0.32m) on its base. A circular pit (diam. 1.2m; D 0.28m) filled with natural till and some burnt stone was just SW of the mound. No artefacts were recovered.
