Part of a possible rectilinear enclosure, perhaps of post medieval date, is visible as an earthwork on imagery from a lidar survey flown in 2015 (S1). The feature visible on the lidar is rather faint and partially coincides with the tracks between forestry rows, but it is similar in size and shape to other, probably post medieval enclosures mapped in the surrounding area; these are thought to be associated with warrening.
