Full Description

A coaxial field system and trackways of possible late prehistoric or Roman date are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs to the west of Trimley, Trimley St Martin parish, centred on circa TM27013764. The main axis of the field system is roughly north-east to south-east, very different to, and probably predating the surrounding current boundaries which are probably medieval and post-medieval in origin. A trackway up to 10 metres in width forms the main north-west to south-east axis. A small rectangular field or enclosure, circa 35 by 20 metres in size, can be seen at TM26893756. The field boundary continues to the north of the transcribed boundaries but was not plotted due to poor control on the available photographs. (S1-S6)
Probably extends upto (& includes?) TYN 067 to NW - boundary of site extended accordingly Jan 2007.
