Full Description

August 2014. Lothingland, Lowestoft and North Suffolk Coast and Heaths National Mapping Programme.
Cropmarks of the Gisleham/Kessingland parish boundary and further undated possible field boundaries are visible on aerial photographs (S1-S2) on land to the south of Hall Farm, Gisleham. There are at least two Roman finds from the field (SHER GSE 020 and SHER GSE 021), suggesting that the field boundaries could be Roman in date. Field boundaries which are depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map (S3) are visible as cropmarks on these photographs, and as soilmarks on further photographs (S4), but were not mapped.
