Type and Period (4)
Earthwork bank surviving in FC plantation. Probably bank associated with Downhall Hall Park (see STN 017). Late C18?
July 2017. 'Brecks from Above' and Breckland National Mapping Programme.
The curvilinear bank of post medieval date, which is described above, is visible as an earthwork on imagery from a recent lidar survey (S2), and to a lesser extent on aerial photographs (such as S3). It is depicted as a plantation boundary on modern and historical Ordnance Survey maps, such as the 1st edition 6 inch (S4). As suggested above, it could relate to Downham Hall Park (SHER STN 017), as could other linear banks and ditches recorded in the vicinity (SHER STN 136).
