Orchard banks of probable post-medieval to modern date are visible as a series of linear earthwork banks on aerial photographs of 1996 onwards, at Braddons Farmhouse. The site of the orchards is listed on the Halberton parish tithe apportionment of approximately 1838-48. Aerial photographs of 1947 up until 1996 show that the orchards are largely covered with trees, although a series of earthwork banks are visible following partial tree removal on aerial photographs of 1996 onwards. The northwest to southeast aligned earthwork banks occupy an area of approximately 0.69 hectares of west facing slope within two adjacent plots depicted on the parish tithe map. The northern extent of the orchard banks, which are noticeable narrower than those to the south, also overlie, and so predate, a probable former extraction pit. The orchard banks remain visible on digital images derived from Lidar data captured between 2005 and 2010.
