Notes

A wall of large sarsens and slight earthworks in the area of Beeches Copse are suggested to represent traces of medieval settlement. Medieval pottery has been recovered during tree-planting, while trial excavation produced a quantity of 12th-13th century pottery from a possible midden, although no structures were observed. Traces of ridge and furrow have also been observed in the area.
