The remains of probable post-medieval to 19th century date banks made for tree planting and drainage were visible on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards and digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2012 as earthworks to the east of East Parliament cottage, Cadbury.
Their alignment is cross-contour and they are interpreted as fruit tree planting banks of probable post-medieval to 19th century date that were probably made to enhance drainage within an orchard.
The banks coincide with an orchard depicted on the on the Ordnance Survey 25 inch first edition map and the field remains lightly planted on aerial photographs of 1946, on which the banks are just discernible.
The surviving earthwork banks were transcribed from digital images derived from lidar data and are likely to survive as low earthwork banks.
