Cornwall Archaeological Unit, 2001-2002, Tamar Valley National Mapping Programme Transcriptions and Database Records, RAF/6399F6558/0048-51; RAF106G/UK879/F20/7039-41 (Interpretation). SDV346287.

Hegarty, C., Knight, S. and Sims, R., 2016, Backlog Recording of the Tamar Valley National Mapping Programme Survey (Personal Comment). SDV359374.

It is largely unclear which of the earthworks here are associated with the NMP database record. Only part of the photo reference is given in the transcription attributes, so the date of the photographs is not known.
