A linear ditch is visible as an earthwork.

Hegarty, C. + Knight, S. + Sims, R., 2014-2015, East and Mid Devon River Catchments National Mapping Programme Project (Interpretation). SDV356883.

A linear earthwork ditch, circa 4 metres in width, is visible on images derived from lidar data captured in 2005. It is parallel, and of similar morphology, to another earthwork circa 60 metres to the east which corresponds to a field boundary depicted on the Tithe Map. The earthwork is therefore interpreted as the remains of a former field boundary, removed prior to the mid-19th century, and obscured on the available aerial photographs by tree cover from subsequent use as an orchard. Earthwork remains are likely to survive.
