The remains of a possible field boundary of post-medieval period to 19th century date was visible as an earthwork bank and flanking ditches on aerial photographs of the 1940s and 1960s to the south of Rull Farm, Whimple.
The earthworks did not correspond with any boundaries depicted on the Tithe Map for Whimple which supports the interpretation that the boundaries had passed out of use prior to the 1840s. The earthworks are obscured by vegetation on the most recent aerial photographs available to the survey and possibly survive as a low earthwork bank and ditches.
