Former field boundaries or drainage channels of probable post-medieval to 20th century date were visible on aerial photographs and digital images derived from lidar as earthwork banks and ditches to the north of Cranbrook.
The relict earthworks correspond in part with former boundaries depicted on the Tithe Map for Broadclyst, but extend beyond those shown which might support the interpretation that the enclosure pattern was previously more extensive. Alternatively the ditched features might be evidence of drainsthat fed into the stream to the north. The features probably survive as low earthworks.
