Summary : An area of possible ridge and furrow ploughing is visible on aerial photographs taken in the 1940s as earthworks south of Colton Farm, Nettlecombe. The earthworks have since been levelled by a conifer plantation, but may have been associated with the nearby deserted farmstead (see NMR 975268). The ridge and furrow is likely to date to the medieval or early post medieval period.
