Full Description

Large curved cropmarks visible on APs (S1)R1)(R2).

March 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme.
The cropmarks described above, which were recorded from aerial photographs (S2)-(S3), are of doubtful archaeological origin. A natural and/or recent agricultural origin is more likely; one of the ‘cropmarks’ may in fact equate to the earthwork of a curvilinear drain partly depicted on modern maps.
