SMR NO: ARM 017:019
CONDITION: TRACES ONLY
"Agriculture has removed most of the site, but a circular platform 52.4m SE -NW x 55m NESW survives. A curving field boundary has preserved the out line of the site at S & W, where a steep scarp falls c. 1m. Elsewhere only a faint scarp can be seen. A short length of bank stands c. 1 m high x 2.7m wide on the W side. Earlier reports suggest that this was more extensive & also note an external ditch which may be recent. The site marked on the 1835 & 1863 OS 6" maps. See SM7 file for further details. "
