Linear and curvilinear banks and ditches are visible as cropmarks and earthworks on digital images derived from aerial photographs of 2016 and 2018 and derived from lidar data of 2013.
The visible cropmarks and earthworks correspond with a road or track and adjacent field boundaries depicted on the Tithe map for Bishopsteighton. The road or track remained extant into the mid-20th century, as depicted on the 1953-1969 National Grid OS A edition imperial map.
The visible cropmarks and earthworks are interpreted as the remains of a road or track and adjacent field boundaries of probable medieval origin. The field boundary was probably cleared by circa 1880 and the road removed by the 1960s.
