Notes

Romano-British unenclosed forecourt settlement with four huts surviving as earthworks. Possibly re-occupied during the medieval period. The settlement comprises a series of oval and sub circular enclosures and several associated circular dwelling houses forming three main complexes. Two rectangular platforms 6m by 3m are thought to be the bases for dwelling houses and possibly represent re-occupation of the settlement in the medieval period.
