Knight, S., 2012, Backlog Input Element of the North Devon Coast AONB National Mapping Programme Project (Interpretation). SDV350734.

This feature does not correspond to any field boundary depicted on the available historic mapping, and it is likely to have gone out of use by the mid nineteenth century. The MORPHE data records the feature as an earthwork, whilst the attributes attached to the spatial information record it as a cropmark. It is unclear whether this feature manifested as a cropmark, earthwork or both.
