Full description

March 2007. Norfolk NMP.
The cropmarks of undated and possibly multi-period ditches, probably former field boundaries, are visible on aerial photographs to the north of Field Road, Stalham (S1-S2). The site is centred on TG 3865 2484.

The majority of the ditches are aligned either northwest-southeast or northeast-southwest and are likely to be the fragmentary remains of field boundaries of unknown date, although an Iron Age to Roman date is a possibility. The cropmarks may also represent more than one phase of fields.
S. Massey (NMP) 30 March 2007.
