An earthwork bank approximately 140m long and up to 15m wide is visible to the south of Thornton Cottages, Kenn, on digital images visualised from photogrammetrically derived elevation data captured in 2014. The visible earthwork corresponds with a field boundary depicted on the Tithe Map for Kenn. The boundary is not shown on the Ordnance Survey First Edition 25-inch map and was therefore probably removed between the 1840s and 1880s.
