2004. Earthwork Rapid Identification Survey.
Norfolk Ancient Woodland Historic Environment Rapid Identification Survey Pilot Study.
Southern boundary, coincident with parish boundary, looks to be a medieval wood bank.
Other boundaries are less convincing, the east formerly internal to a larger wood extent but probably medieval.
North internal and a lesser feature.
West may be medieval, but is slight.
Hollow (linear) may be natural.
See report (S1) for further information, including detailed descriptions of the individual features identified (Contexts 1-5). The results of this survey are also summarised in (S2).
