A former field boundary, or possible lynchet, of potential medieval date is visible as an earthwork bank on aerial photographs of 1942 onwards and on digital images derived from LiDAR data captured between 1998-2012, to the southeast of Galmpton Mill. The former field boundary, or possible lynchet, is curvilinear in shape and is parallel to the steep west sloping ground that forms Brim Hill. The former boundary, which may be medieval in origin and passed out of use by the time of the Kingswear parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48, remains visible as an earthwork bank on digital images derived from LiDAR data captured between 1998-2012.
