Type and Period (2)
A possible trackway and field boundaries of uncertain date can be seen to the North of Nacton village, as cropmarks on aerial photographs, centred on circa TM222405, Nacton Parish. The cropmarks probably represent two phases of land use. The linear cropmarks defining the possible trackway are orientated roughly north-west to south-east. It is not clear whether these cropmarks are the remains of a wide trackway (circa 8 metres wide) or incomplete field boundaries. A possible narrower track, circa two metres wide, may be visible at the southern end of the longer cropmarks. The very faint cropmarks of a second possible track may be visible turning to the north-east, but have not been transcribed. The possible field boundaries are on a more north-east to south-west axis, and enclose a possible small circular enclosure at TM222405, but this may be geological in origin. The south-eastern area of this field is not productive for cropmarks due to a band of deeper soil or alluvium. (S1)
