Several curvilinear earthwork ditches are visible on images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2014 and on aerial photographs taken from 1947 onwards. They are circa 1.5 metres in width, and seem to be aligned obliquely to the contour, the longest visible section falling circa 10 metres across a 165 metre length. This segment is interpreted as the gutter of a probable catchmeadow system, apparently taken off the watercourse at circa ST2599600955. The two other possible gutters do not follow the contour as closely, and drop much more steeply, although they could be associated.
