April 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme.
Linear earthwork banks are visible on aerial photographs and lidar (S1)-(S3). Their date and function is not known, but they could have acted as post medieval boundary banks, dividing up the heathland of Broom Covert, and/or separating it from surrounding farmland. They are in part followed by modern land divisions depicted on Ordnance Survey maps.
