Following on from Cath’s thread I noticed these 3 features on the same pasture field on my main permission. Never given that field a go but will do once most of the arable has been seeded.
The features are at the bottom of a north facing slope in a bit of valley and a small stream runs along the hedgeline that runs roughly from left to right on all the pics. I’d be interested in any opinions. Cheers.

Those look interesting :thumbsup: I spent 3 hours in the last 24 getting lost in the new lidar detail. I hope yours work out to be a good sign of habitation. Keep us posted :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Have you cross referenced with the 1880s OS maps? They look like they could be homesteads at the minimum. Field boundaries pop out from them.

Not sure. I think you need to give me the exact location then I can check it out for you :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously when you see anything like that on LIDAR or crop marks on ariel / satellite images they need checking out.

My initial gut feeling is that they look "too good" to be Roman or such so might be more modern.

Great advice from FenTiger, try checking the area out on old OS maps.
This is the site I use most http://maps.nls.uk/os/6inch-england-and-wales/

But at the end of the day the bottom line is that if you do not detect there you will never know. So give it a try, good luck and let us know how you get on.

Thanks,
I’ve checked on 1880s OS, tithe and a 1670s map and the field is the same on all of them as it is now so the features must be fairly old.

Cheers Evan, I use a site called ‘know your place west’ which covers my area. Great site which you can change side by side base maps and overlay HER data .Well worth a look for anyone with permissions in the south west. Covers the counties in pic below

Very many thanks for that site, its a new one to me, I just sneak into the area it covers and it looks as if could be very good and certainly needs checking out in detail.

Top right of the toolbar is where you access base maps and other layers including HER etc if you haven’t worked it out yet !

Last pic looks like drainage, it might be worth asking the farmer if they know anything about them?

That’s not a bad idea, I’ll ask them when I bump into them next. You might be right.
