Full Description

The site of St Wilfred's Church lies under pasture. The area of the church itself is marked by an oval rise, its top capped with a series of gravestones, some of them broken. No portion of the church is visible above ground. The church was demolished in 1793. The site has lain undisturbed since the demolition of the church and affords considerable potential for the study of the history of the building and surrounding population in the Med period. (1)
An earth mound is evident at above grid ref, within a compound which is presumably the churchyard. (4)
The site of this church occupies an exposed hilltop. A non-surveyable grass covered irregular broken mound is visible at the published symbol, surrounded by pasture. No building foundations could be traced. (5)
See L826 for ? shifted settlement and M8969 for gravestones.
