Some possible ridge and furrow would appear to be visible on Hunting Survey aerial photographs from 1969. At the time of the photograph the land appears to be cultivated land, however a caravan park is now shown on the modern map. The date of the ridge and furrow is uncertain. It has more of a medieval appearance, but a later, post medieval date cannot be ruled out. There are two areas visible; one is centred on TG0331 4386 and is approximately 150m x 120m; the other on TG0332 4371 and is about 150m x 75m. The overall area is centred approximately on TG0330 4381.
