Full description

February 2004, Norfolk NMP.
Linear cropmarks of banks, probably representing medieval or post-medieval field boundaries visible on 1965 Meridian aerial photographs (S1). The main northwest - southeast bank extends from approximately TG 3552 2558 to TG 3564 2538 for a distance of 235m. A second bank extends eastwards from this feature for 52m from approximately TG 3559 2546 to TG 3565 2546. Although undated it is possible that these features relate to ploughed-out medieval or post medieval field boundaries. These features were only sketch plotted and grid references given are approximate. (S1)
