Bank 0.6 to 0.8m high and 2m wide and ditch about 1.5m wide around a rectangular area in the north east corner of the property. It is now cut and destroyed in several places where houses and gardens run across it. On the road side, the eastern side, it is also the road side bank which runs all the way along the road towards the south eastern part of the property.
This feature is shown on the 1875 O.S. map but on no other earlier ones. On this map the area it encloses is rough grazing and scattered trees, presumably much as it is today though perhaps more open. It may have been dug as a field boundary as it is similar to that around 'The Lawn'. However the soil is very poor and also rather boggy in this part of the property so it seems a most ill advised place for a field, even it was only used for pasture.
