Several curvilinear ditches and banks, between 2 and 4 metres wide, are visible as earthworks and cropmarks on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards and on digital images visualised from photogrammetrically derived elevation data captured in 2015. They fit into the field pattern and are interpreted as the remains of former 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. The features have been transcribed from several sources.
