NO 49067 52434 (NO45SE 30) A c0.4ha area at the small ringfort of Rob’s Reed Fort was surveyed, 2 October 2017, using a Geoscan RM85 electrical resistance meter. The survey aimed to clarify the extent and nature of the fort and to identify any possible archaeological features within the interior or immediate environs of the site.

The survey clarified that the fort consists of a c2.4m wide stone wall with a probable entrance at the S side of the enclosure, consisting of a simple break measuring just over 2m. A possible 8m diameter structure abutting the eastern side of the inner face of the enclosure is faintly visible in the data.
