|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Possible medieval shrunken village|
Analysis of aerial photographs of this site reveals cropmarks of a possible village. Fieldwalking here has collected Late Saxon and medieval pottery fragments and metal detectorists have found two Roman brooches, a medieval coin, medieval buckle and medieval belt fitting. It is possible that Castle Rising village once spread this far but has since shrunk.
