|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Possible medieval toft|
A hedged enclosure with one edge meeting the common can be seen on RAF aerial photographs taken in the 1940s of this site. The hedged enclosure is now mostly removed but a probable medieval house platform and a possible ditch or moat around it (visible as a depression) can still be seen. Medieval and post medieval pottery have been found here.
