Full description

September 2012. Norfolk NMP.
Possible post medieval drains or field boundaries are visible on aerial photographs (S1-S3) just inside the southern boundary of Kimberley Park, Wicklewood. The site is centred on TG 0900 0411 and consists of linear banks and ditches measuring up to 300m in length.
It proved rather difficult to discern the features around TG 0900 0393 as it appeared differently on every photo and was not particularly clear on any. Further drainage-related features were visible in the area on more recent photographs (S4), and these were not mapped as they were considered to be modern in origin.
S. Tremlett (NMP), 27 September 2012.
