Full description

1994.
Two grass fields, west of Church Farm.
Western one has north-to-south linear depression and east to west bank, suggesting a hollow way or associated field boundary, possibly leading to derelict Woodgate Farm to north. Both features truncated by the present track and arable land to west. Substantial area of extraction pits in centre east of field suggests clay pits.
Eastern field has remnants of post medieval cottages, standing outbuilding and well, with boundary ditch on west as earthwork. 20th century desertion.
B. Cushion (NLA), 11 July 1994.
