The earthworks correspond in part with an area of rough or disturbed ground.

The earthworks correspond in part with an area of rough or disturbed ground.

A former extractive pit of possible medieval to 19th century date was visible on digital images derived from lidar data as an earthwork on the south-west facing slopes abutting the north side of the road overlooking the Corry Brook south of Putt’s Copse, Stockland.
The earthwork did not correspond with any pit or quarry explicitly depicted on the Tithe Map for Stockland, but does partly match an area depicted as rough or disturbed ground. Part of this area of disturbance is also marked on the Ordnance Survey First Edition 25 inch map. This supports the interpretation that the extractive pit had probably passed out of use by the 1840s.
The former pit remained clearly visible as a shallow earthwork on digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2014 and therefore probably survives as an earthwork.
