Field boundaries of probable post medieval date were visible on aerial photographs of the 1990s as low earthwork banks and cropmarks, abutting Stockland Great Camp to the north. Two of the earthworks can be identified as extant field boundary banks on the Tithe Map for Stockland, the Ordnance Survey First Edition 25 inch map and aerial photographs of the late 1940s. Forming a reversed L-shaped boundary these have been transcribed to place the third boundary in context. Extending laterally to the south from the east-west aligned boundary for nearly 90 metres, the third visible earthwork was therefore probably removed prior to the 1840s.
