A linear earthwork bank is visible on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards and on images derived from Lidar data captured in 2006. It runs parallel to extant field boundaries that are depicted on the Tithe map, and is interpreted as a relict field boundary of post-medieval, or possibly medieval, date that went out of use by the mid nineteenth century. At circa 5 metres in width, it may have been reduced in height and spread by historic ploughing, although significant remains appear to survive.
