Full Description

Probable field boundaries of possible Post-Medieval date are visible on aerial photographs as cropmarks centred on circa TM10073332 about 130m south west of Brantham hall. The cropmarks form a large 'V' with arms about 200m long orientated roughly north and north-east-east. A shorter length of cropmark circa 35m can be seen approximately halfway along the northern arm, disappearing eastwards under Cattawade street. The cropmarks are probably caused by a ditch that was created by the removal of field boundary hedgerows in the Post Medieval period. (S1, S2)
