Former field boundary depicted on 1847 Highweek parish Tithe Map, but not on 1880s Ordnance Survey First Edition map. Field boundaries within this site potentially date from the medieval period, in line with the development of the landscape in this area. Buried remains such as ditches and former land surfaces could survive below ground for those boundaries removed. Other details: Appendix 1, A26; Figures 4-5, 8.
