Group of cropmarks mapped from 1990 OS aerial photographs (S1). A parched linear, 80m long and up to 2m wide is visible from TF 6815 3569 to TF 6819 3562. It is possible that this represents a stretch of bank, although it is possible that it is a worn trackway relating a relatively recent farm activity. The rest of the site consists of short stretches of ditch, some of which are curvilinear in form. These may be a dispersed continuation of the field systems and enclosures that are situated in the field to the immediate east (NHER 19279). These are thought to be Romano-British in date, with possible Late Iron Age origins.
