An earthwork ditch of uncertain date and function is visible on aerial photographs of 1946 and 1967, to the southeast of Trinity. The prominent earthwork is L-Shaped in form, is broadly east to west and north to south aligned and with a well-defined and sharp corner to the northeast. The nature and date of the earthwork is largely unclear, although does interestingly correspond at either end to two historic field boundaries depicted on the parish tithe map, although is bisected by Bagmore Hill. If the earthwork does form part of a former field boundary, then they would clearly pre-date construction of the road and be of potential medieval date. The earthwork ditch remains visible on aerial photographs of 1967 and on digital images derived from Lidar data captured during 2005.
