'old walls' shown on os 6" 1964 map. Vis=11/7/1979 (dcra). Grass. There is now a house in this field, built in 1930 and called old walls. There is a bank of stones in the se corner of the field, which is apparently the result of clearance when the house was built. Pine trees have been planted in the drive, and there are some rhododendrons about. At the southern edge of the field is a lane, walled off at both ends, which runs up from ponsworthy way to stop just short of a small enclosure called olands garden, now a vegetable patch. A house is being built below old walls. There is also a circular wall that marks where the first owners tried to make a well (dcra).
