Linear banks are visible as earthworks on aerial photographs taken in 1964 and digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017, within Stover Park, Teigngrace. The visible earthworks comprise two parallel and closely spaced banks which are east to west aligned and between 4-7m wide and 35m long, with a northwest to southeast aligned bank located to the north and an east to west aligned bank to the west. The earthworks do not correspond with any banked features shown on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of the late 19th century, or on later available historic maps, which offers support to the interpretation that they had passed out of use by this time. Whilst largely of uncertain origin, it is possible they represent 18th or 19th century trackways associated with Stover Park (MDV56726), a number of trackways being shown in this location on historic maps. The prominent nature of the two closely spaced banked earthworks could possibly form the eastern half of a former ornamental bridge spanning a stream shown in this location or a possible precursor to the foot bridge shown to the north on the First Edition OS map.
