A cropmark is visible on The Warren, Hartland, centred on circa SS 22642532. The feature is visible as a pale linear cropmark aligned north-east to south-west, approximately 55 metres long and roughly 5 metres wide, surrounded on three sides by a darker cropmark 2-3 metres wide. This has been tentatively interpreted as a former mound and enclosing ditch, perhaps a long pillow mound or artificial rabbit burrow of medieval or post-medieval date associated with The Warren.
