Full description

FLETCHER, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV10257.

Now under rough grassland, gorse and reed the ridges measure approximately 5.0m across and have a maximum height of 0.1m. A broad 0.5m high earthen bank with a ditch on wither side marks the w edge of the cultivated area. The origin and date of this cultivated area is not clear but it lies within the prince hall newtake and may be part of the intensive 19c cultivation of the farm (fletcher).
