A possible parkland track or drive of probable post-medieval to 19th century date is visible on aerial photographs and digital images derived from lidar as an earthwork in Killerton Park. The possible track is visible for over 1 kilometre from a point circa 100 metres to the east of Killerton house, running north towards North Lodge. Approximately halfway along the visible earthwork a triangular spur extends to the north-west into the woodland of Dolbury Hill for circa 200 metres. The earthwork does not correspond with any routes depicted on the Ordnance Survey 25 inch first edition map and therefore probably passed out of use prior to the 1880s.
