G.N.3) Old Field Boundaries

Analysis of Lidar data is good for detecting old field systems. Even when areas the modern landscape appears flat any old field systems will be visible. For example:

At the western end of Petworth Park.

Near the Welldigger's Arms in Petworth. 

Overlaying a morden Google Maps image onto a Lidar-based view shows that the trees currently visible in what appear to be 'random' locations are actually on the boundaries of an old field system.
