Earthwork


Ridge and furrow earthworks around Sunnyside Farm can be seen on a number of aerial photographs. All of it appears to be straight and narrow which suggests a relatively recent date (possibly 18th or early 19th century) and of one episode. Narrow ridge and furrow can also be found south of Woolsington Hall. The ridge & furrow cultivation method originated in the Saxon period and survived in use until the 19th century.
