|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Clare deserted medieval settlement|
The settlement of Clare is listed in the Domesday Book in this Hundred, held by Robert Earl of Morton. There are no references to it in any later documents, and the exact location remains unknown, as it appears to have become deserted during the early medieval period. It is possible that it was washed away by the sea.
