Full Description

A pronounced bank/lynchet and ditch runs down the centre of the field from north to south, marking the site of a removed pre-1847 post-medieval field boundary. This boundary may also have fossilised the edge of a cultivation strip, and was removed sometime after 1922. To the east and west is ridge and furrow, broad to the west and narrow to the east, though both are fairly indistinct. It probably continued to the south. There is a short pbank, possibly a headland, is in the south-east corner of the field. (1)
