Full description

April 2002. Norfolk NMP.
Linear cropmarks visible on 1988 BKS aerial photographs (S1). Two linear features, 100m long and up to 4m wide, parallel to each other. These are likely to be old field boundaries. They share orientation with those still remaining to the east and correspond with the parish boundary line between Ringstead and Old Hunstanton. They are probably medieval-post-medieval in date.
