Two relict field boundaries are visible on images derived from lidar data acquired in 2007 as subtle curvilinear earthworks, approximately 450 metres to the west of East Milford. The low earthwork is orientated roughly east-west and is clearly aligned upon the surrounding extant curvilinear field boundaries of possible medieval origin, and are probably contemporary in date with them.
