It is largely unclear which of the earthworks and cropmarks recorded here as part of this survey are associated with this NMP database record. The field boundaries are dispersed over a large area and so have been polygonised into three separate groups. Only part of the photo reference is given in the transcription attributes, so the date of the photographs is not known.
