A bank up to 7m wide and 95m long is identifiable as a subtle earthwork crossing the south-facing combe slopes to the south of Trelana farm, Pyworthy, on visualisations derived from lidar data captured in 2005 and 2013. A ditch is identifiable flanking the north-east side of the bank
The visible earthworks do not correspond with any boundary depicted on the Tithe Map for Pyworthy but are in keeping with the character of the surrounding field pattern, which has been characterised as of medieval origin.
They are interpreted as evidence of a former field boundary of medieval date that was removed prior to the mid-19th century.
