Transcriptions of multiple curvilinear earthwork ditches visible on aerial photographs RAF/CPE/UK/2501/F20/4110-10 correspond with a database record of an earthwork field system of ‘unknown medieval’ date, to the east of Buctor. A curvilinear earthwork bank immediately to the north-east was also probably recorded as part of this field system.

The aerial photograph reference given in the Tamar Valley NMP transcription attributes is incomplete; the date of the photograph is not included for the earthwork ditches and no attribute data for aerial photography was recorded for the earthwork bank at circa SX461242.
