Cropmarks visible of site of Old Haveringland Hall site (see NHER 7519).
Rectangular 'block' positive anomalies may relate to the location of hall buildings or that of garden features.
To the southeast at [1] a rectangular parchmark indicates a former building or wall.
Two other linear parchmarks, both leading to the church, appear to be roads/tracks.
The ditches and enclosures relating to both the road and the possible buildings may be garden and building range boundaries, defining the layout of the hall and its grounds.
