Hegarty, C. + Knight, S. + Sims, R., 2014-2015, East and Mid Devon River Catchments National Mapping Programme Project (Interpretation). SDV356883.

A dark curvilinear cropmark, less than 2 metres wide and with a possible pale cropmark on its southern side, is visible on aerial photographs taken in summer 1989. It may have formed over the remains of a field boundary ditch and bank, and the curvilinear alignment is in keeping with the surrounding field system and suggests a medieval date. No field boundary is depicted in this location on the historic mapping, indicating that it passed out of use prior to the mid-19th century. Below-ground remains may survive.
