A probable Post Medieval field system is visible as cropmarks of ditches on aerial photographs, centred on TM 22673664 to the east of Red House Farm, Shotley. The majority of the field boundaries run parallel to each other on a north-west south-east alignment from Wade's Lane down towards the drainage ditch. Some of the boundaries are stepped and run north-east south-west before continuing on a north-west south-east alignment such as at TM 22733669. (S1) (S2) (S3) (S4) This is also a characteristic of the field boundaries shown both in the fields to the west and to the north of Wade's Lane on the 1st Edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of circa 1884. Two of the boundaries appear to be direct continuations of the field boundaries shown on this map, suggesting that the field system is of Post Medieval date. Other marks in this field may be drains or natural features. (S5)
See SLY 014 for the probable Bronze Age round barrow and SLY 121 for the possible Prehistoric enclosure.
