Full description

March 2013. Rapid Identification Survey.
A linear hollow, aligned roughly east-west and up to 2.2m deep. The northern and southern sides of the feature gently slope, while the eastern and western sides slope very gently.
It is likely the hollow was excavated as a quarry for sand and gravel. The gentle slopes of the eastern and western sides suggest they could have been used as access routes.
D. Robertson (HES), 31 July 2014.

May 2019. Breckland National Mapping Programme.
The earthwork obesrved in 2013 has been identified in lidar imagery (S1).
This earthwork has not been transcribed separately - the transcription has been recorded as part of NHER 30470 along with further features relating to Lynford Park and Gardens identified from the Aerial Investigation and Mapping (AIM) survey. The mapped extent of this existing HER record has however been amended to correlate with the location and extent of the feature on the lidar imagery [1].
