A pale linear cropmark, circa 2 metres in width, is visible on aerial photographs taken in 1946. It fits into the field system in this area and is interpreted as having formed over the remains of a field boundary bank of probable medieval or post-medieval date. It is not depicted on historic mapping, and may therefore have fallen out of use prior to the mid-19th century.
