Monument record BLN 054 - Multiphase cropmarks of field boundaries

Please read our .

Summary

The cropmarks of a group of multi-phase ditches, trackways and field boundaries of unknown date are visible on aerial photographs. It is likely that these boundaries predominantly relate to activity of later prehistoric to Roman date and relate to more extensive cropmark sites in the area, such as SOL 002 and SOL 010. However some elements, in particular within the southern part of the site may be medieval to post medieval in date.
