October 2019. Breckland National Mapping Programme.
Four pits and a possible small section of bank, of a probable modern date, are seen as earthworks on aerial photographs and visualised lidar data (S2-S3). The earthworks most likely relate to modern forestry features or drainage and are visible on recent (2007) aerial photographs and on visualised lidar data. The pits were previously recorded from field visits (see above). The monument polygon has been amended to correlate with the position of the feature on the visualised lidar data.
