Most of the boundaries around Brim Hill are shown on the 1839 Tithe Map. The boundary enclosing a large field on the south side of the hill consists of an earth bank with some stone revetting with a section of drystone wall 1.2m high where the boundary deviates from the alignment on the Tithe Map. The boundary wall around the north side of the hill at SX88285553 is a drystone wall 1.2m high which becomes an earth and stone bank towards Mill Lane. The boundary along the south side of Mill Lane and Hook Lane at SX88345565 consists of a terrace with a drop to the lane and is shown as a hedgebank on the Tithe Map. The northern boundary wall of Brimhill Plantation at SX88255540 is mostly a drystone rubble wall 1.3m high by 0.6m wide with vertical capstones built between 1869 and 1907.
