 Record Name Earthwork and Enclosure below Little Windegg
 Record Description A penannular earthwork in the form of a ditch (max. 1.8m deep) and bank with a central, heavily quarried, mound and a levelled area to the fore. On sloping ground, facing West, this feature is of uncertain date and purpose but may have been the stance for a timber building; the ditch to divert run-off water from higher ground above.
 Additional Notes This earthwork is in proximity to, and may be associated with, the much larger semi-circular feature shown in the later images. In part embanked, in part ditched and in part following the post- glacial landslip terrain this feature can be traced from/to the field walls close to Stang Lane but is considered to pre-date those walls. Enclosing several acres of ground, it may represent an earlier Drovers' stock enclosure.
