Notes

Remains of the medieval settlement of Mugginton and part of the associated field system. The remains include a hollow way, visible as a 10 metre wide sunken gully, abutted on its eastern side by two large, terraced platforms defined by low banks. Earthworks on the surface of these platforms indicate the locations of buildings. A third terraced platform lies adjacent to Taghole Lane on the southern edge of the site. It is smaller than the other two but also appears to represent a building platform. West of the hollow way are the remains of part of the medieval open field system associated with the village. A second hollow way runs through this ridge and furrow. This is interpreted as a back lane, providing access to the fields. Elements of the settlement are visible as earthworks on air photographs, and were mapped as part of the Derbyshire and Peak District Aggregates Assessment Survey.
