Cropmark of what appears to be the beginning of a road running north-north-east from modern road, but as there is no air photograph for the rest of the field to the east its continuation cannot be checked.

1990 photography reveals that in fact this feature is part of a pipeline, not a road. However the county number now applies to other cropmarks in the field including a ring ditch.
