Full Description

2016: Very slight bank with ditch to the east running parallel with, but slightly to the east of the ride. Probably a post-medieval boundary marker (S1).

February 2018. 'Brecks from Above' and Breckland National Mapping Programme.
The post medieval boundary bank described above is visible as an earthwork on imagery from a recent lidar survey (S2). It is depicted on the Ordnance Survey first edition 6 inch map (S3), and as a consequence it has not been mapped by the project. The map shows the bank continuing some distance to the north, where further segments of earthwork bank are also visible on the lidar imagery.
S. Tremlett (Norfolk Historic Environment Service), 22nd February 2018.
