Summary

Boundary banks, probably of post medieval to modern date, were identified as an earthworks during a site visit. They are also visible as earthworks on lidar imagery from a survey flown in 2015. They correspond with plantation boundaries depicted on historic Ordnance Survey maps, indicating a post medieval to modern date. One of the banks corresponds with the suggested boundary of Santon rabbit warren (NHER 54065), and an earlier origin for that element is plausible.
