Full Description

At Stanton on the Wolds is a homestead moat enclosing 4 acres. (1)
In the SE is a large platform next to Brown's Lane. A pond with associated ditches lies just to the NE. The area around the church has a number of surviving linear bank and terraced areas, particularly to the SW in the small copse. A bank survives around the SW side of the Church. A system of ditched rectangular enclosures is preserved on the golf course, with ridge and furrow to the NW. A number of terracing banks and a ditch can be seen between Stanton Lane and the large pond. A broad curving hollow in the SW corner is possibly related to a former stream course. Slight terracing survives around Manor Farm. (2)
It is not clear exactly what the VCH entry refers to, but here are many earthworks on the golf course (opened 1906). These appear to include remains of a street with associated property boundaries. Stanton was enclosed and had a reduced population by C17. (3) (4)
