A bank circa 11.5m long and 2m wide is visible on digital images derived from aerial photographs of 2016 on the south-facing slopes north-east of Lower Cadworthy Farm.
The visible earthworks do not correspond with any boundary depicted on the 19th or early 20th century maps available to the survey and was therefore removed prior to the mid-9th century. However, it is in keeping with the character of the surrounding field system and may be the remains of a field boundary of medieval date, forming the eastern edge of a small square plot enclosing the remains of a possible prospecting pit.
