Type and Period (2)
A Post Medieval seabank and possible flood banks are visible as earthworks in Trimley St Martin, Stratton Hall and Levington parishes on aerial photographs taken from 1944 onwards. The seabank runs for roughly 3.7km from TM 25543745, near Loompit Lake, along the northern side of the River Orwell and around Levington Creek before terminating at TM 23363831. A number of short banks run inland from the seabank and may be related to some sort of water management on the marshy land behind the bank. A seabank is visible in this position on the Ordnance Survey 1st edition 25" map of circa 1884 suggesting that the bank described above is likely to have Post Medieval or earlier origins.
