Six curvilinear ditches, in parts up to approximately 5 metres wide, are visible as cropmarks and earthworks on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards. They fit into the field pattern and are interpreted as relict field boundaries. Their curvilinear shape indicates a likely medieval origin, but they are not depicted on the Tithe map and any field boundaries here probably went out of use before the mid-19th century.
