Richard Sims, 2015-2016, Marshwood Vale National Mapping Programme (NMP) project (Interpretation). SDV359291.

A former field boundary of potential medieval date is visible as an earthwork bank on aerial photographs of 1948 onwards, at Harcombe Farm. The slight curvilinear earthwork is northwest to southeast aligned and generally respects the historic field boundaries depicted on the Parish Tithe Map of approximately 1838-48 and classified as medieval enclosures based on strip fields under the Historic Landscape Characterisation project. The relict boundary appears, however, to have passed out of use by this time. It is possibly visible as an earthwork bank on aerial photographs of 1995.
