Full Description

2019: An archaeological evaluation revealed evidence of medieval and post medieval activity.
The predominant recorded features were ditches which were broadly co-axial of medieval and post medieval date. There was a concentration of medieval features in trench 5 at the southern end of the site comprising two ditches and a pit. The finds from these features likely reflect the dispersion of domestic debris in a peripheral area beyond the core of the village. The ditches appear to represent a system of small fields or enclosures, likely of agricultural function and located to the immediate north-west of the 'Great Green' at the corner of the village. Pits found in trench 4 possibly represent quarry pits. (S1)
