Monument record CAC 072 - Cropmarks of field boundaries of probable medieval to post medieval date

Please read our .

Summary

The cropmarks and soilmarks of field boundaries of probable medieval to post medieval date, are visible on aerial photographs. Although its possible that some elements are earlier than this date – in particular the angled double ditched boundary or trackway within the eastern part of the site, many of the boundaries seem consistent with the field pattern depicted on the Ordnance Survey First Edition map. It is worth bearing in mind – given the location – that some of the ditches may have acted as drainage.

The cropmarks and soilmarks of field boundaries of probable medieval to post medieval date, are visible on aerial photographs (S1-S5). Although its possible that some elements are earlier than this date – in particular the angled double ditched boundary or trackway within the eastern part of the site, many of the boundaries seem consistent with the field pattern depicted on the Ordnance Survey First Edition map (S6). It is worth bearing in mind – given the location – that some of the ditches may have acted as drainage.
