Notes

Earthworks of part of a Medieval manorial farmstead. Field investigations in 1972 and 1982 identified a set of multiple ditches to the north and east. These comprised two main ditches up to 1.5 metres deep, separated by a low bank, with a slight outer bank on the north side. Between the outer enclosure and the sinuous ditch within the enclosure was a block of short ridge and furrow. In the south was a series of indeterminate earthworks which may be the sites of former buildings.
