Circular feature (Netherton with Biddlestone)

A small earthwork lies amongst an area of disturbed ground at Netherton. It measures 6m in diameter and is surrounded by a wide, deep ditch. The central mound is 1.5m high. Locally the feature is known as a cockpit, but the ditch and overall size do not seem typical of cockpits.
