An interrupted ordered, rectilinear linear system, 'field' size on average 153m by 81m. Visible as cropmark and earthwork banks and ditches, and interpreted as relict boundaries of a medieval or later field system.

The features do not correspond to any field boundaries depicted on the Tithe map or later available mapping, and their use therefore probably predates the mid nineteenth century.
