Description

A concentration of twelve or more stones are revealed in section in a low coastal exposure. The stones occur in two rough courses and extend for 5m in length and 0.4m high. A humic sand deposit associated with the stonework contains no visible inclusions but may be a former cultivation surface. These deposits cover a firm dark brown sand and are covered by turf and topsoil. It is suggested that these remains represent part of a field wall and a cultivation surface since traces of rig and furrow cultivation are present in the hinterland.
