2.Visible on 0.25m Lidar are the slight remains of Post-Medieval ridge and furrow groups aligned NW/SE and NE/SW. The N/S aligned boundary mentioned in (1.) appears to overlie the ridge and furrow. Approximately 60 to the west are also the remains of several ploughed out field boundaries, likely post-medieval in date.

The boundary and cultivation ridges have been digitally mapped and updated as part of the CHERISH Project.
