Exist: Yes
Record: Unique
Notes: A rectangular enclosure not far from Corringdon Ball chambered tomb measuring 112m by 34m that can be seen clearly on aerial and satellite photos of the area. The walls are up to 1.5m thick and 0.3m high, and have been entirely destroyed on the east and north-west sides. There is no obvious entrance and the interior is empty of any structure. According to Butler the east to west orientation of the long axis could suggest a mortuary enclosure of mid-neolithic date (Vol 5 pp.155-6).
