Full Description

Aerial photographs from 1973 (S1) and 1981 (S2) show sections of parallel lines as cropmarks, in fields close to Dingle Marshes, north of Dunwich. These may be traces of ditches either side of a trackway - although the three sections may not be from the same single feature. The date and exact function of these features is unknown.

The cropmarks described above are visible on further aerial photographs (S3).
