|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Site of medieval building and earthworks|
Excavations in this area in 1960 exposed massive flint and mortar foundations of what is thought to be a medieval building. Some earthworks, possible identified as the remains of medieval embankments or moats were noted. A site visit in 1996 indicated that although the field was now under arable use, some slight undulations still remained.

P. Wade-Martins explains that this refers to an excavation by himself as a boy in which massive flint and mortar foundations were exposed. Howlett visited the dig.
1980. Site visit.
Field in pasture, full of earthworks. A long bank (?side of hollow way) runs east to west from a gateway in the west side; other earthworks form rectangles which could be toft sites. None of the earthworks continue outside the field, except for a pond on the north.

Whole field now under arable. Slight undulations visible in young cereal crop.
