Three curvilinear earthwork ditches, each less than a metre wide, are visible as earthworks on aerial photographs taken in 1946 and 2010. They are aligned approximately along the contour, and tentatively interpreted as the remains of former catchmeadow gutters of post-medieval or 19th century origin. None are depicted on the available historic mapping indicating that this system had fallen out of use during the late-19th century.
