Full Description

Cropmarks: linear features. Adjacent to and ? connected with BNT 014 (S1).
A number of ditch defined trackways and field or enclosure boundaries of probable Post-Medieval date can be seen as cropmarks on aerial photographs to the south-west of Brantham Hall Farm, centred on circa TM118337, Brantham parish. The features are on a regular, roughly south-west to north-east south-east to north-west alignment, that matches quite closely the cropmarks of a possible field system visible further to the east (see BNT 014). A second branch of trackway doglegs to the south-east, and may be of earlier date. (S3, S4).
