HER Number:MDV107944
Name:Former Field Boundary South of Old Bridwell

Summary

A linear earthwork, visible on aerial photographs taken from the 1940s onwards and on images derived from lidar data captured in 2005, is interpreted as the remains of a former field boundary, removed prior to the mid-19th century.

Probable former field boundaries are visible as linear earthworks in two fields on aerial photographs taken from the 1940s onwards and on images derived from lidar data captured in 2005. In the northernmost field the earthwork appears to be a ditch, circa 2.5 metres wide and terminating at a dog-leg in the extant field boundary to the south. The earthwork in the southernmost field appears to have included a slight earthwork bank in 1946; this had been removed by 1966. The ditch here is up to circa 4 metres in width and corresponds to a line of trees depicted on the late-19th century mapping, presumably the remnants of a former field boundary. As no field boundaries are depicted in these locations on the Tithe Map they are assumed to have fallen out of use by the mid-19th century, and they are assumed to be of post-medieval or possibly medieval date. Earthwork remains are likely to survive.
