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

Earthwork banks of potential medieval date are visible on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards, to the east of Yeo Farm. The broad, low earthwork banks measure up to 28m in width, are northwest to southeast aligned and occupy an area of approximately 1.44 hectares. The earthworks closely correspond to field boundaries depicted on the parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48 and would appear to represent the earthwork remains of a series of individual strip fields. The earthwork banks remain visible on digital images derived from Lidar images captured between 2005 and 2010.
