This site consisted of a complex of medium sized shallow V shaped ditches covering much of the area within the pipeline corridor in this field. The most important elements were two successive phases of ditches running approximately parallel to one another and with one 90 degree turn within the stripped area. There were also a number of other ditches in association with the apparently major elements. The only possible structural feature found was a single irregularly shaped pit. The lack of a domestic element suggests that this site forms part of an Iron Age field system showing at least one major change in layout and orientation. The location of any associated settlement is unknown.
