Summary

A concentration of medieval to medieval/post-medieval pottery was recovered from this field in 1978, while metal-detecting in 2014 recovered a number of medieval buckles.
The concentration of pottery is surrounded by a rectangular depression in the field, and within this rectangular enclosure can be seen areas of flint rubble. This is probably a medieval moated site, with traces of the building still remaining inside.
