Monument record WRW 031 - Compartment 4200, Boundary Banks; The Kings Forest,

Please read our .


Earthwork boundary banks of a probable post medieval date have been recorded from field visits and are seen on visualised lidar data. The banks probably relate to the boundaries of Newheath Plantation as marked on the 1904 OS map and possibly marking the northern edge of a wood belt shown on the Tithe map (1840).

A series of earthwork banks, most likely post medieval in date, are seen on visualised lidar data (S3). The above banks have been recorded as part of WRW 089 along with further banks identified by this survey. The monument polygon has been amended to correlate with the location of the features from the lidar data.
