Field cleared from ancient woodland in the 20th century bounded by vestiges of this woodland to south east and west (with substantial historic ditches to the far side/within these woodland strips carrying a chalk stream from spring points further north). Evidence of seasonally marshy ground, e.g. patches of rush, lesser spearwort nearby. Believed not to have been cultivated for some time (possibly ground conditions unsuitable) and not grazed.
