A medieval settlement at Much Cowarne immediately south east of Mill House in the River Lodden Valley. The settlement has been identified as Cuare, a late Saxon market centre mentioned in the Domesday Book and held by King Harold in 1066. About 300 metres north west lies the present village of Much Cowarne. The settlement includes remains of building platforms, trackways and the earthwork remains of medieval agricultural activity. There are three hollow ways visible which meet at the centre of the village in a triangular flat area. This may have been a village green or market place.
