A former field boundary of potential medieval date is visible as an earthwork ditch on digital images derived from Lidar data captured between 2005 and 2010, off Crown Hill, Halberton. The northeast to southwest aligned linear earthwork closely respects the historic field patterns of strips depicted on the parish tithe map of approximately 1838-48, although the boundary appears to have passed out of use by this time. Other associated earthwork ditches of this strip field system were also visible on Lidar images, although since they are depicted on the tithe map, they were not transcribed as part of this survey. The earthwork ditch was not clearly visible on other aerial photographs or digital images made available to the survey.
