Hegarty, C., Knight, S. and Sims, R., 2018-2019, The South Devon Coast to Dartmoor Aerial Investigation and Mapping Survey. Area 1, Haldon Ridge to Dart Valley (AI&M) (Interpretation). SDV361305.

Cropmarks which have formed over a levelled bank, circa 6m wide, flanked along its western side by a possible ditch are visible on aerial photographs taken in 1946 and 1969. The cropmarks do not correspond with any linear features shown in this location on the mid-19th century Parish Tithe Map, or on later available historic maps, but are in keeping with the historic field pattern in this location characterised as medieval enclosures based on strip fields. The cropmarks are therefore interpreted as a possible relict field boundary of medieval or post-medieval date which had passed out of use by the mid-19th century.
