Parallel earthwork banks are visible on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards over approximately 0.5 hectares of the west facing combe slopes on the south-eastern edge of Paradise Copse. The earthwork banks correspond to an area of rough ground depicted on the Ordnance Survey first edition 25 inch map. Their function is unknown but they might be evidence for a former orchard or the remains of improvement ridge and furrow of post-medieval date. The banks remain clearly visible as earthworks on digital images derived from lidar data acquired in 2005 and aerial photographs of 2010.
