    • Ditch running NE-SW diagonally across TR4 which could be a boundary ditch. There is a possibility that this is a continuation of the enclosure ditch (F1108) seen running N-S across TR11. A gully (F474) meets the ditch in the Southwestern corner of the trench. In the NE corner, three other ditches (F465, F476 and 477) meet the feature with F465 and F476 meeting the ditch at the same point. An earlier phase of the ditch may have terminated towards the NE corner of the trench but it is unclear whether this feature (F475) is a terminus or a turn of an earlier phase.
