Type and Period (5)
2016: Bank (c.2m wide, 0.5m high), with possible ditch to the south, running perpendicular to the main ride and the western warren bank (STN 035). Appears to join to the warren bank southwest of a small gap. Marked on early and modern OS maps. Probably a post-medieval boundary marker, possibly related to warren activity (S1).

The post medieval boundary described above is visible as an earthwork on imagery from a lidar survey flown in 2015 (S2). It forms part of a dense spread of boundaries, enclosures, trackways and cultivation or plantation ridges recorded across Downham High Warren (SHER STN 185). The mapping for the boundary has been recorded as part of this larger site.
