Orchard banks of probable post medieval date were visible as earthworks of 1946 on the northern side of Caseberry Lane. The roughly north-west to south-east orientated banks were probably bounded by a field boundary depicted on the Tithe map for Bradninch, previously interpreted as a prehistoric enclosure. The banks were not visible on aerial photographs of later date and have probably been levelled.
