A linear earthwork ditch running east to west between banks, which have mature deciduous trees growing on top, was identified during survey in 2008. There is no public access but the banked ditch appears to run the length of the field in a reverse S shape. The Historic Landscape Character records this ditch as the boundary of a fossilised field system between common land and enclosure in 1748. (1)
