A large earthwork platform, circa 30 by 40 metres in size, is visible on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards and on images derived from lidar data captured in 2005. It is cut into the slope east of the chapel at Bridewell Park and may be associated with the 18th-19th century designed parkland here. It is partly depicted on the late-19th century mapping. Remains appear to have survived as well-defined earthworks in 2010.
