Description

Magnetometer and resistance survey commissioned by ENPA and Natural England of a field at Lee Abbey in May 2017 to inform the route of the England Coast Path. The survey was undertaken by Mark Edwards and Ross Dean of Substrata. A number of magnetic and resistance anomalies coincide with, and most likely represent, an extant prehistoric bank, elements of a relict bronze age field system, a section of post-medieval estate boundary wall, an extant ploughed over circular mound and an extant sub-circular platform. These last two features may have prehistoric or later origins and could relate to World War II search light emplacements.
