Full Description

A complex group of substantial earthworks lies ot the E of Manor Farm, fronting onto East Street. The principal elements are a series of substantial sub-rectangular hollows and shallow gullies, running from immediately adjacent to the farm entrance towards the E and parallel with East Street; these are probably the remains of further fishponds, similar to L4945. There are also a number of other earthworks, including a number of regular platforms at the SE corner of the field, imediately N of East Street. (1)
