Curvilinear ditches were visible as earthworks on aerial photographs of 1996 onwards and on digital images derived from lidar data captured from 1998 to 2014.
The visible earthworks did not correspond with boundaries depicted on the 19th century maps available to the survey, but are in keeping with the character of the surrounding field pattern which has been characterised as medieval enclosure based on strip fields. The ditches are therefore interpreted as evidence of former field boundaries of probable medieval date that were removed prior to the mid-to-late 19th century.
