Linear cropmarks and soilmarks of medieval to post-medieval field boundaries visible on 1964 RAF aerial photographs (S1) and Ordnance Survey 1972 aerial photographs (S2). The main north - south ditch extends from TG 3521 2558 to TG 3533 2524 for a distance of 360m. A ditch extends westwards at a right angle for 120m from TG 3529 2537 to TG 3518 2534. The curving main ditch lies parallel to a modern field boundary to its west and a second boundary to its east, which is shown on the Ordnance Survey second edition map (25in, 1902-1907) (S3). Although these boundaries are probably post medieval in date, their curved form may reflect the alignment of medieval agricultural strips.
