Type and Period (2)
A series of ditched trackways of probable prehistoric or Roman date are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs, to the south east of Brantham Hall Farm, centred on circa TM12313372, Brantham parish. The trackways appear to form the basis of a coaxial field system and are arranged on a north-east to south-west axis. The trackways cross the paths of a second, more regular series of cropmarks in several places. This more regular system follows the alignment of the current field system and is probably Post-Medieval in date (see BNT 014). An interpretation based on the air-photo evidence alone suggests that as the trackway based system does not appear to relate to the existing field system, it would probably be of late prehistoric date. The 1992 SAU excavation evidence would also appear to confirm that the more regular system is later in date (see BNT 014 for more details).
