Full description

The ditch does not correspond with any depicted field boundary.

A curvilinear earthwork ditch was visible.

A possible former quarry of medieval to post-medieval date was visible on aerial photographs and digital images derived from lidar data as an earthwork pit to the north of Rutton Farm, Whimple. The ditch defined a roughly L-shaped shallow boundary, approximately 10 metres wide and visible for approximately 250 metres. It did not correspond with any boundary depicted the Tithe Map for Whimple and was therefore probably removed prior to the 1840s. It might have been part of a former field pattern superseded by the extant post-medieval field pattern. The ditch might have been cut by a small pit, possibly a quarry, recorded separately. The possibly boundary probably survives as a shallow earthwork ditch
