Type and Period (5)
Earthwork enclosure located in coniferous plantation. Ill-defined bank which has degraded differentially (full details in parish file). Curious long, thin shape. Shown on second edition OS map as enclosure with different tree structure to surrounding areas. Probably early plantation enclosure (S1).
July 2017. 'Brecks from Above' and Breckland National Mapping Programme.
The post medieval to modern possible plantation boundary described above is visible as an earthwork on imagery from a recent lidar survey (S2). It is depicted on the Ordnance Survey 1st edition 6 inch map (S3), and also by modern Ordnance Survey mapping, and has therefore not been mapped by the project. The polygon defining the site has been amended to accord with the location of the feature on the lidar imagery, and on modern Ordnance Survey MasterMap mapping.
