Type and Period (2)
Double banks defining(?) E (see STN 035), W & S sides of Lingheath (Poors allotment? and flint mines - BRD 066) at SE end joined banks STN 035 in 1928 (S2).
Note movement of parish (& Lingheath Trust?) boundary with Santon Downham on east side.
Probably Post Medieval.
June 2017. 'Brecks from Above' and Breckland National Mapping Programme.
The earthworks of double banks, described above, are visible, at least partially, on imagery from a lidar survey flown in 2015 (S3). They are depicted on 19th and 20th century Ordnance Survey maps, and have consequently not been mapped by the project. The monument polygon, however, has been amended to encompass the earthworks as visible on the lidar imagery. The lidar imagery also shows banks along the northern boundary of Ling Heath, again mostly depicted on historical and modern Ordnance Survey maps, but these are not currently included within the site.
