Possible ridges, perhaps of post medieval date and perhaps relating to ridge and furrow, cultivation ridges, or plantation ridges, are visible as earthworks on imagery from a lidar survey flown in 2015 (S1). Although the orientation of the ridges is at odds that of the modern forest rows, the possibility that they are of relatively recent origin, and relate to 20th century forestry operations, cannot be discounted.
