Type and Period (1)
The location of several drains of probable medieval or post medieval date has been revealed by cropmark growth, visible on aerial photographs, to the immediate west of Roos Hall at circa TM 412900, Barsham parish. Only those features not marked on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of circa 1884 have been transcribed. It is apparent from that map that the cropmarks fit closely into the mapped pattern of late 19th century drains and must belong to an earlier phase of drainage, although their date is unclear. The clear compatibility some drains with the known regular pattern may be indicative of a post-medieval date, but some of the less regular and narrowly space cropmarks may belong to earlier reclamation attempts, possibly contemporary with the moat at Roos Hall.
