The possible remains of orchard tree planting banks of probable post-medieval to 19th century date were visible as low earthwork banks to the south-west of Green End Lane, Plymtree on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards and images derived from lidar captured in 2005 and 2010. The banks corresponded to a field (plot 538) listed as Clarks Orchard on the Tithe Apportionments for Plymtree. The plot is not depicted as an orchard on the Ordnance Survey first edition 25inch map and it is therefore likely that the orchard passed out of use prior the 1880s.
