Possible pound? "The feature consists of a sub-circular earthern bank 25m in diameter and up to 0.4m in height. It is best preserved on the North side where the bank is well defined, flat topped and has a plan width of about 4.0m On the South side the bank has been spread and flattened but still survives to 0.5m in height as a prominent outward-facing scarp, where the natural ground surface falls away from the enclsure. There is no entrance through the bank."
