Monument record MDR11975 - Field boundary or yard banks, Perryfoot Farm, Peak Forest

Type and Period (3)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Six low parallel banks of possible medieval date. The banks are ploughed out to the south-east beyond the previous line of fence. The most likely archaeological interpretation for the formation of these banks is that they were medieval or possibly earlier field boundary banks. Senior's 1637 map shows dwellings to the south-west, it is possible that the banks are part of a medieval field system (see SMR 11691). What is unclear is whether they bound yards or cultivation strips. (1)
