The field system comprise a series of curvilinear ditches, broadly northeast to southwest and northwest to southeast aligned and occupying an area of approximately 4.4 hectares of land. They appear to have largely passed out of use by the time of the Bradstone Parish Tithe Map of approximately 1838-48. A number of issues are also depicted here which may suggest some of the earthworks represent former water courses.
