Notes

The earthwork remains of a medieval settlement located in a field known as Perry Court. The remains are represented by a series of rectangular, square, circuler and linear earthworks which indicate the sites of settlement features such as houses, yards, paddocks or small fields, ponds and at least two connecting hollow ways. Further remains include three pits or dry ponds and the boundary of a manor house. Traces of a low bank around the perimeter of the field in which the earthworks lie can still be seen in places, which suggests that the settlement was enclosed although this bank has become obscured by thick hedges and modern drainage. Scheduled.
