More information : A pair of medieval or post medieval field boundaries apparently forming the corner of a rectangular enclosure are visible as earthworks in a field west of North Regis Common, Challacombe. Located at approximately SS 7055 4142, the enclosure measures 70 metres by 50 metres, and is cut by the modern track shown on the modern Ordnance Survey map at SS 7054 4142.
