A possible cropmark bank of a former field boundary of potential medieval date is visible on aerial photographs of 1947, to the northwest of Newlands Cottages. The diffuse and fragmented linear cropmark is broadly northeast to southwest aligned and closely respects the historic field patterns based on medieval strip fields. The possible boundary appears, however, to have passed out of use by the time of the Cullompton parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48. If the cropmark did form part of a medieval field system, it had evidently been heavily plough-damaged on aerial photographs of 1947 and may have since been completely destroyed. The cropmark bank was not visible on other aerial photographs or digital images made available to the survey.
