Alternative site of Ruin Clifford DMV
An alternative site of the deserted settlement of Ruin Clifford which dated to the Medieval period. This site lies 700m north of Clifford Chambers.
1 The name cannot be linked to desertion. The depopulation is listed in Rous, but not spoken of by Dugdale. The site lay on the banks of the Stour opposite Clifford Chambers…. There are a few suggestive earthworks and possibly an old road visible to the eye, but the air photograph does not amplify them.
2 Location unknown (U), excellent documentary evidence with period of desertion known.
3 Dugdale records three houses at Ruin Clifford.
4 For a second possible site see PRN 1045.
