The feature is visible in three separate lengths (S1), although they were almost certainly one feature originally. The complete feature has a length of 540m, and a width of 8m. The feature is aligned in an approximate north to south direction, with a slight curve towards the east at its northern end.
This is possibly a large boundary bank, or more likely a road or trackway, pre-dating the current park layout. The feature does not match with Clerks map of 1590 (S2), but is likely to be medieval in date.
