|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Site of possible medieval tofts and paddocks|
In 1982 several low earthen banks were noted at this location. Some formed regular enclosures, perhaps toft sites or paddocks of medieval date. Sadly, the field is now almost completely levelled with little trace of these features remaining.
