Full Description

A croft boundary bank survives at the rear of the Far Lane properties and, with an associated ditch, across the much of the rear of the Main street plots. Some interplot croft boundaries are present. A hollow and group of small building platforms can be seen within the ridge and furrow on the NE side where the track emerges southward from Far Lane. A broad, flat, slightly raised area runs across the rear of the Main Street properties between the croft boundary and the start of the ridge and furrow. A track runs from Main Street, near the School, out to the NE. After it crosses the broad flat area, it continues NE as a slightly raised earthwork, along the NW side of the hedge. A pond is sited at the SW end of this hedge and a ditch along its SE side. Another raised linear earthwork that must be the line of a track runs NW from the large house in the west. Terracing at the rear of the SE Main Street plots may represent building plots. (1)
