Med sherds including Grimston ware.
Basil Brown defined this site as Swatshall or Swattisfield Hall and noted that an old bridge had stood here in 1932 but was demolished by 1935 when Rev T A Pytches visited the site and reported seeing a large earthwork, remains of a moat and part of an old bridge. Early Med sherds were found in vicinity and field to E. C12, C13 unglazed pottery is noted and indications of black patches and kiln sites on this field (S1).
