Possible linear and rectilinear ditches, of uncertain origin, date and function, are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs (S1)-(S3), centred at TM 4777 9792. If they represent genuine archaeological features they are most likely to have been field boundaries and possibly a trackway, perhaps related to the more extensive field systems mapped to their northeast (SHER LUD 016). The latter are also undated, although a Roman date is plausible.
