December 2017. 'Brecks from Above' and Breckland National Mapping Programme.
The earthwork bank described above probably equates to the bank mapped just to the south of this recorded location using imagery from a recent lidar survey (S1). Like NHER 61083 to its north, and a previously unrecorded bank lying between them, these banks may mark the boundary of the medieval to post medieval Santon Warren (NHER 54065). All of the banks have been recorded as part of NHER 62066.
S. Tremlett (Norfolk Historic Environment Service), 13th December 2017.
