Full Description

NH64SE 40 683 435

NH 683 436 to NH 683 434. Pit-alignments, Hilton: Air photography has revealed the crop-marks of two pit-alignments 400m NE of the enclosure described on NH64SE 39. That to the W runs in a gentle curve for about 200m; the E example runs for a distance of about 110m parallel with the N part of the W alignment and about 7m from it.

Excavation here in 1991 failed to reveal any pits although the trenches were accurately located. The cropmark of two parallel pit alignments has only been recorded once and is now thought to have been created by temporary surface soil features.
