Full Description

A number of linear banks and one possible ditch are visible on a photograph from 1928. Their function and date is unknown although the banks do appear to be cut by drainage channels depicted on the OS 1st Ed map from 1884. (S1) (S2) More banks of a similar nature are visible to the north on photographs from 1940, although these photographs are unclear. (S3) Some of the features are still visible in 1945, although they appear to have little height. (S4)
