Full Description

Rectangular depression visible on AP - pond or gravel pit ? Appears to have a water channel to N. (1)
Earthworks consist of a large rectangular depression with a smaller hollow to the W and various earthworks to the N and E including a water channel. Mr John A Marshall, the current owner of the field believes that the whole complex was excavated by his great grandfather in the 1840s for the willow soaking / basket making industry which was quite significant in Sutton at that time. The large hollow is now used each year as a ‘stadium’ for the village fete. (2)
