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

Two pale linear cropmarks, circa 2 metres in width and one perpendicular to the other, are visible on aerial photographs taken in 1946. They are interpreted as having formed over the remains of field boundary banks of probable medieval or post-medieval date. They are located in the northern part of a field, apparently dividing this section into two segments, circa 40 by 30 and 25 by 60 metres in size. Neither is depicted on historic mapping, and they may therefore have fallen out of use prior to the mid-19th century.
