Type and Period (4)
2016: Perpendicular bank crosses ride. C.4m wide and 0.5m high. Probably a post-medieval boundary marker, possibly related to warren activity (S1).
February 2018. 'Brecks from Above' and Breckland National Mapping Programme.
The boundary bank described above, which as suggested is probably of post medieval date, is visible as an earthwork on imagery from a recent lidar survey (S2). It forms part of an extensive area of multi-phase boundaries and trackways recorded within Downham High Warren (SHER STN 185), and has been recorded as part of that larger site.
