At a date when this field was arable land (1963), vertical aerial photographs recorded parts of a near-square enclosure with ditches extending from it to the north and west. The series of parallel ditches may be furrows remaining from medieval ploughing but the small extent visible was insufficient to identify the reverse-S shape that characterises such ridge and furrow cultivation.

Boundaries ditches were also identified on aerial photographs assessed as part of an aerial photographic mapping survey carried out in 2009/10. Features are interpreted as being later prehistoric/Roman boundary ditches and a rectilinear enclosure. (2)
