Full Description

January 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Beauty National Mapping Programme.
Two or more linear banks are visible on aerial photographs (S1-S2) on land to the south of Westwood Lodge, Blythburgh. These features are visible on an area covered with many abraded and re-used earthwork trackways, the majority of which are depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map (S3) and have not been mapped. This linear bank, however, is visible cut by some possible post medieval sheep folds or stock enclosures (SHER BLB 109), and is still visible as an earthwork on Lidar imagery (S4) , suggesting that it may warrant further ground survey.
