September 2019. Breckland National Mapping Programme.
Two large earthwork banks (centred at TL 8226 7421) and a curved bank (centred at TL8240 73117), most likely post medieval in date, are seen on visualised lidar data (S2). The 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 feature from the visualised lidar data.
