A curvilinear earthwork bank, circa 3 metres wide and at least 60 metres in length, is most clearly visible on aerial photographs taken between 1987 and 1992. It is located in parkland north of Peamore House, and borders an area depicted as broadleaf trees on the historic mapping. It may therefore be a boundary associated with the designed parkland, or perhaps one that became disused when the land was emparked.
