Landscape survey by Philip Masters of ACTA as part of the SCC and SyAS ASHLV study programme. In total, 150 features were recorded across the common. Predominantly, these were a series of boundary earthworks, hollow-ways and tracks. Many of these probably date from the use of the common during the Second World War by the Canadian Army, although the vast majority are probably medieval or post-medieval, and many can be identified on historic maps. Considerable quantities of Mesolithic and Neolithic flintwork have also been recovered from the common in the past, the significance of which, it is suggested, requires further systematic study, especially since evidence for Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman activity is slight.
