Possible former field boundaries potentially of medieval date were visible on digital images derived from lidar data as linear and curvilinear earthwork banks on the east-facing slopes near the north-eastern tip of Dumpdon Hill, Luppitt Parish.
The relict earthworks do not correspond with any boundaries depicted on the Tithe Map for Luppitt or the Ordnance Survey First Edition 25 inch map, the latter depicting Dumpdon Hill as rough ground. The curvilinear nature of the earthwork banks might support the interpretation that the boundaries were medieval in origin, and had been removed prior to the 1840s.
