|Name:||Earthwork of medieval toft or enclosure, Roman and medieval pottery sherds|
Aerial photography from 1946 recorded a ditched enclosure around 70m square, situated to the west of High Farm. It is thought unlikely to be a moat, but not impossible, and is more likely to be a toft enclosure of High Farm. Roman and medieval pottery sherds were recovered from the inside of the enclosure.

RAF aerial photograph shows ditched enclosure around 70m square to west of High Farm. Southwest and northwest corners appear rounded. The south and west arms correspond to the line of a bridleway marked on 1876 Enclosure Award Map (in office) as discontinued. Unlikely a moat, but not impossible, more likely a toft enclosure of High Farm. Now arable, west arm visible as slight scarp.
Pottery from within enclosure:
One Roman greyware rim.
Four medieval unglazed.
Two medieval Glazed Grimston ware sherds.
Identifed by A. Rogerson (NLA).
