Vis=21/3/1996 (ea) there is a probable hollow way which runs roughly ne from c. Sx90677610, then curves roughly n down the hillslope to c. Sx90557642. This track is visible in the distance, from the road on the w side of little haldon, e of the strip fields (ea),.

A linear earthwork ditch or hollow circa 5m wide and 460m long is visible on the north-east facing combe slopes overlooking Moor Brook, on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards. The visible earthwork corresponds with a field boundary depicted on the Tithe Map for Bishopsteignton but not the Ordnance Survey First Edition 25inch map. The relict ditch is interpreted as the remains of a former field boundary potentially of medieval to post-medieval date, that was removed between circa 1840 and 1880.
The former boundary remains visible on digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2013.
