Full Description

The field system described above is visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs (S3-S7). It is possible that some of the cropmarks relate to a footpath depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey, but the remainder of the cropmarks may indeed represent field boundaries of possible Roman date. The site polygon has been extended more than 350m to the north-east to incorporate further possible elements of the field system.
