Rapid examination of ap suggests the presence of a linear feature (consisting, for part of its length, of 2 parallel linears), possibly a trackway, of uncertain date, visible as cropmarks from ss94030115 to ss93820132, c.350m s of latchmoor green. This possible trackway may connect to the other possible trackway ss90sw/137 (miller).

Two parallel linear ditched features of possible late prehistoric to Roman date are visible on aerial photographs as narrow cropmarks on the floodplain of the River Exe, roughly 300 metres to the south of Latchmoor Green.
The southernmost cropmark is visible for circa 240 metres on a north-west to south-east alignment. The second ditch is visible for almost 80 metres on parallel alignment 5 metres to the north of the southern ditch. It is clearly visible only at the south-eastern end of the group.
The cropmarks are possibly evidence of a former ditched trackway. A similar feature is recorded approximately 220 metres to the south, although it is not clear from the aerial photographic evidence alone if the two possible trackways are connected.
