January 2018. 'Brecks from Above' and Breckland National Mapping Programme.
Some narrow, parallel banks and ditches of unknown date are visible as earthworks on imagery from a lidar survey flown in 2015 (S1). They look like features related to forestry; however, their orientation is at odds with that of the plantations visible on 1940s and modern aerial photographs, and with the boundaries shown on the Ordnance Survey 1st edition 6 inch map (S2). They could instead relate to an earlier, post medieval plantation, or derive from some other kind of activity; they could equally be of modern origin. Given the recent date of the lidar survey, it is likely that the earthworks still survive.
