Full description

2003. Earthwork survey. Site 10.
An Earthwork survey and inspection of maps identified the extent of the likely medieval deer park. Woodland inspection identified an area of partially-disturbed periglacial undulations. A network of banks and ditches corresponds with boundaries shown on the Enclosure Award map of 1802 and described as 'Old Inclosures'. Further banks and ditches are likely to be of later date.
See (S1) and (S2).
D. Holburn (HES), 14 October 2011.
