Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Earthwork ridge and furrow of possible post medieval date with a maximum length of 180m has been identified and mapped using good quality aerial photographs. It is centred at SK 3997 2776. (1) The earthworks have been plotted on a map overlay at a scale of 1:10,000. (2) Recent examination of aerial photographs suggests that the ridge and furrow in the fields closer to the church has now been ploughed out but that earthworks still survive in the field immediately to the north-west of Rectory Farm. (3) Feature identified from aerial photographs taken in 1963. (4)
