A group of irregular earthworks survives in the southwest of a paddock within Lynford Park (NHER 30470). It includes possible scarps/banks that may define a platform, a ditch on the east of the possible platform and a number poorly defined undulations.
These earthworks could be the remains of garden features associated with the original and/or 18th century Lynford Hall (NHER 5138). They were within parkland by 1856, as shown on as map in (S1).

Multiple banks and ditches are seen as earthworks on visualised lidar data (S2).
These earthworks have 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 .
