Details Henge monument ( Class I); situated on a flat grassy haugh at bottom of steep-sided valley; consists of a circular bank 16.5m in diameter with an internal ditch enclosing a circular platform (6m diameter). There is an entrance causeway across the SE quadrant of a ditch with corresponding break in the outer bank. Appears similar in all respects to the Neolithic causewayed cremation cemeteries at Dorchester, Oxon, sites IV - VI. The low-lying position of the henge, close to water, is typical.
