Monument record SOL 050 - Site of probable field boundaries of uncertain date

Please read our .

Summary

Linear ditches, of uncertain date and function, are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs. They are most likely to represent former field boundaries; a double-ditched element could be a trackway. They could be contemporary with the more extensive field systems recorded to their immediate north (SHER LUD 016), which are also undated, although a Roman date is plausible. Alternatively, they could be contemporary with the probable medieval to post medieval trackway and structure located to their immediate west (SOL 049).
