The major feature is aligned in an approximate southwest to northeast direction (TF 8845 4316 to TF 8863 4344), and has a maximum recorded length of 325m. At the northern end there appears to be two short stretches of bank running from the larger feature towards the west. This is possibly a parchmark of one of the roads or tracks depicted on Clerk’s map of 1590 (S2), or may be a medieval boundary bank.
To the east are two further short lengths of east to west and north to south aligned linear feature, that may be medieval boundary features or early elements of the park.
