Full description

April 2005. Norfolk NMP.
A cropmark of an undated, possibly Roman, linear bank probably a field boundary is visible on aerial photographs (S1). This cropmark is located at TG 3205 3341. A 30m long cropmark of a bank, probably a field boundary is present on a northwest to southeast alignment. This cropmark crosses over the line of the Paston and Bacton parish boundary. It appears to align with a cropmark of a possible Roman field boundary ditch 190m to its southeast (NHER 39097) and may be of contemporary date.
