Full Description

Field systems, possible deserted village enclosed by PMed park (S1). Includes SW-NE trackway/s (S2).
Park was probably a deer park at first, rather than a landscape park. Built between 1750-1780. Much of original part shown as treed. Network of enclosed fields. Park proper divided into many large compartments, with external pale having smaller enclosures and normal agricultural land to the north. By 1840 park had the appearance of a classic landscape park.
