Full description

February 2014. Rapid Identification Survey. HA 88.
Linear bank, aligned roughly east to west, with a mound at its western end. The bank is about 70m long, up to 8.5m wide and up to 0.7m tall. The mound measures up to 20m by 15m.
The bank is not on the line of a feature shown on (S1). However, this map shows that in the 1880s it was located with Bush Pightle, a wood/plantation within Lynford Park (NHER 30470). It could be a wood bank associated with this parkland wood or a pre parkland feature. The mound could be the result of disturbance to the bank.
The bank is aligned roughly parallel to another bank (NHER 61045) to the northeast. The two features could be related.
