A possible extraction pit of post-medieval to modern date is visible on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards, at New House Farm. The small circular pit measures approximately 11m in diameter and is located in close proximity to two marl pits, approximately 340m to the east. It is possible the earthwork pit exercised a similar such function. It remains visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs of 1963, although appears to have been levelled by 1992.
