    • The first visible recut of the moat, also likely to be the result of cleaning out of ditch to create drainage similar to [4012]. Machine cut, with straight, vertical sides, characterised by a sharp break of slope, with a gradual base and concave sides. Filled by (4017) and truncated by later ditch cut [4012].
