Type and Period (3)
- BOUNDARY BANK (Medieval - 1066 AD? to 1539 AD?)
- BOUNDARY DITCH (Medieval - 1066 AD? to 1539 AD?)
- WOOD BANK (Medieval - 1066 AD? to 1539 AD?)
Woodland boundary bank about 3m wide and up to 0.4m high with a shallow ditch on both sides, traced for over 700m along the northern boundary of Rushbeds Wood during woodland survey carried out between November 2005 and February 2006. The presence of mature trees and old coppice stools, estimated at around 200-250 years old, on the bank, and the meandering nature of the boundary, suggests that it may have been constructed within existing woodland, possibly in the late medieval period. At its westernmost end the boundary is defined by a very low, straight bank 1-2m wide and 0.2m high with a slight ditch 1.8m wide on the north side (B1).
