Parallel linear earthwork banks, approximately 3.5 metres in width, are visible on aerial photographs taken between 1947 and 1996. They are aligned cross-contour and depicted as orchard on the available historic mapping. They are interpreted as post-medieval or 19th century banks for fruit tree cultivation, and trees were visible on the 1940s aerial photographs. They presumably went out of use in the second part of the 20th century, and may since have been levelled.
