Orchard banks of probable post-medieval to modern date are visible as a series of linear earthwork banks on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards, at New House Farm. An orchard is depicted here on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of between the 1880’s-90’s. Aerial photographs of 1946 show that the site of the orchard remains largely covered with fruit trees, although traces of north to south aligned earthwork banks, on which the fruit trees were established, are visible. These banks occupy an area of approximately 0.73 hectares of gentle southwest facing slope, within a single triangular shaped plot depicted on the First Edition OS map. The orchard banks are visible on aerial photographs up until 1989, although their survival after this date is uncertain.
