Earthwork banks of probable post-medieval to modern date are visible on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards, to the west of New Ford Farm. The earthworks, which are north to south aligned and occupy an area of approximately 1.11 hectares of moderate-steep north facing slope, may represent the remains of 18th-19th cultivation banks or represent the site of a former orchard, the banks providing improved drainage and increased soil depth for the fruit trees. The earthwork banks remain visible on digital images derived from aerial photographs of 2010.
