A possible bank defined enclosure is visible as a slight earthwork on the south-west facing slopes of Milber Down on aerial photographs of 1946. The visible bank is circa 2m wide and defined a roughly rectilinear area circa 92m long and 42m wide, circa 25m north of an east to west track crossing Milber Down. The visible earthworks do not correspond with any enclosure depicted on the OS First Edition 25inch map and the earthwork might therefore predate the 1880s. The plot was turned over to plantation (Netherton Milber) by the early 20th century and the site has now been developed for industrial use.
