Earthwork banks have been recorded from aerial photographs within the vicinity of this record; however, it is not known whether they relate to the same banks as described above. The banks recorded from the aerial photographs have been recorded under ELV 197, BNH 174 and IKL 364 and most likely relate to post medieval boundary banks.
