The remains of an area of probable former post-medieval to 19th and 20th century ridges made for fruit tree planting and drainage were visible as earthwork banks to the north of Cranbrook, digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2005.
The banks corresponded to an orchard depicted on the Ordnance Survey firt edition 25inch map, associated with the former Younghayes Farm. The orchard remained planted into the 1940s but was cleared and the planting banks visible by the early 1960s. The banks remained visible as earthworks on the lidar images of 2005 but may have been levelled during the development of Cranbrook.
