Several parallel curvilinear earthwork banks and ditches are visible on images derived from lidar data captured from 2005. They fit in to the surrounding field system as depicted on the tithe map, which appears to have been based on medieval strip fields. They are adjacent to the field system recorded immediately to the south-east, recorded from aerial photographs (MDV129243) and form part of the same field system. A wide bank that runs perpendicular to them may be a different phase, or possibly a geological feature. Only the field boundaries not depicted on the historic maps and not recorded by the Tamar Valley NMP project have been transcribed.
