Full Description

Hollow, up to 1m deep and some 15m across, running along the front of the Manor House gardens. Boundary between the field and the garden, marked by a 1m drop and supporting stone wall (rather like a haha). To the west of this hollow are numerous irregular earthworks. The farmer from Manor Farm stated that the field was being kept as pasture because there was so much stone beneath the surface. A number of possible building platforms can be seen. There is a suggestion of further earthworks to the north of the farm but nothing easily identifiable. To the east, some ridge and furrow survives. (1)
