|Name:||Earthworks of medieval to post medieval enclosures|
The earthworks of a series of ditched enclosures survive in a field close to the site of St Peter's Church, NHER 10180. The enclosures probably date to the medieval period, and one boundary was still in use in the 19th century. Fragments of Roman, medieval and post medieval pottery have been found on the site.
