Field boundaries of probable post-medieval date were visible as earthwork ditches to the south-east of Lower Willyards Farm, Broad Clyst, on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards.
The banks correspond in part to field boundaries depicted on the Tithe Map for Broad Clyst and the Ordnance Survey 25 inch second edition map of the early 20th Century. However, further visible ditches might be the remains of additional boundaries not depicted on the Tithe Map and which therefore probably passed out of use prior to the 1840s.
The ditches were visible as earthworks on digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2005.
