Full Description

Stony feature, comprising an arcing length of ?walling, 1.4 m NNE/SSW and then turning ESE for 2 m, possibly with another return to SSE - forming 3 sides of small rectangle c 0.9 m across, but this is unclear. Angular boulders protruding just above turf give suggestion of facing, but not definite.
On level ground on edge of valley floor, overlooked by ridge to NW and sheltered by dune on NNE. Dune is deflating: turf disappears 2 m to NE of feature, which is currently under short, thin turf.
Possibly something structural beginning to be exposed in base of deflated area. Could, however, be coincidental arrangement of stones and wholly natural.
Recommendations: Continue to monitor in case more is exposed. <1><2>
