Monument record MDR7017 - Kniveton Shrunken Village, east of the Old Hall, Kniveton

Type and Period (3)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

This field constitutes part of the shrunken medieval village. It lies in the south-east corner of the village on a steep slope south-east/north-west in orientation. At least one building platform was located in the north-west corner of the field, with a hollow way leading up to it. In the south-west corner of the field there appeared to be more evidence of the deserted village, but here the undergrowth was very thick and the definition of these features was unclear. The field is defined by a mixed hedge in the east and the south, a barbed wire and wire mesh fence in the north and a drystone wall in the west. (1)
