Full description

June 2007. Norfolk NMP
Cropmarks of undated and post medieval field boundaries and ditches are visible on aerial photographs (S1). These cropmarks are centred on TG 3303 0071. A broad ditch cropmark is present on a southwest to northeast alignment, turning to the north at its northeast end. It is flanked by a narrow ditch on its northwest side. These ditches do not correspond to the post medieval field pattern. The alignment of the southwest to northeast ditch is similar to that of a section of Thurton / Bergh Apton parish boundary to the southwest. It is possible that these cropmarks form part of an enclosure but their date is uncertain. A field boundary ditch cropmarks of post medieval date is present on a north to south alignment on the western edge of this group of cropmarks.
