Monument record ELV 038 - Old Bank (1848 tithe), Elveden Warren

Please read our .

Summary

A post medieval bank, named ‘Old Bank’ is depicted on a 19th century map, and is also visible as an earthwork on imagery from a 2015 lidar survey. It lies within Elveden Warren (SHER ELV 039), and may be a warren-related feature. As the lidar survey was flown relatively recently, it is probable that the earthworks still survive.

Full Description

Tithe map shows long narrow (bank?) 9 & 21 which are named as `Old Bank' (S1). Presumably relating to rabbit warren, ELV 039.
Also see ELV 035 & 036 for smaller warren enclosure and warren lodge. Further (related?) banks probably survive, as shown on 1:10,000 OS map and tithe map, but survey needed to confirm.

The earthwork bank described above, which is presumably of post medieval date, is visible on imagery from a 2015 lidar survey (S2-S3). Single, double and triple banks are evident at various points along its length. As the lidar survey was flown relatively recently, it is probable that the earthwork still survives.
