Full description

September 2005. Norfolk NMP.
Cropmarks of undated linear ditches are visible on aerial photographs (S1). These cropmarks are centred on TG 4721 1382. A total of three sections of linear ditch cropmark are present in this group. These all share a roughly southwest to northeast alignment that does not correspond to the surviving post medieval field pattern. The alignment of these ditches is similar to parts of a possible Roman field system 250m to the southeast, but these two groups of cropmarks cannot be linked with any certainty.
