This feature probably equates to one identified during the initial desk-based phase of work for the Bellfield Farm development. The relevant aerial photographs were rectified and the feature is shown plotted on the site plan within a watching brief report from 2007. It is plotted as a ring ditch, approximately 20m diameter, with an apparent gap/entrance in the east. <1>
