Full Description

Extensive cropmark complex SW of Shelford Manor, centred at above grid ref. Part scheduled. Site recommended for scheduling by RCHM - "a pit alignment crossing irregular enclosures with many pits - could be an IA site with later occupation". (1)
A complex system of enclosures and pits, some possibly linked with the nearby Med manorial complex, some probably earlier. Pit alignments (old tree lines ?) and drove roads also feature in this very large complex. (2)
Now under arable, apart from a section now garden for estate cottage. (3)
See L 8239-43 for cropmarks, L 8244 for finds, L 1812 for nearby cropmark, L 1813 for cropmark complex E of Shelford Manor and cross refs.
