A magnetic survey of the 13ha scheduled site revealed a complex pattern of ditches which suggests that the site was in use over a long period of time. The ditches overlie the Iron Age farmstead in places and can be dated to the Roman period. No definite evidence was found for the position of the entrance to the farmstead enclosure or for any structures within the enclosure. The survey did identify some ditches that were previously unknown and established more precisely the location of those known from aerial photographs. <1>
