Notes about this historic site

1 The possible extent of the Medieval settlement, based on the first edition 6″ map, 35SW 1886.
2 The village is not listed in the Domesday Survey of 1086.
3 Included in this monument are the shrunken areas WA 5669, WA 3083, and the site of the medieval chapel WA3056. The fields to the south suggest ridge and furrow, and the boundary hedge seems fairly clear. To the north the limit to the settlement is harder to follow, but the wavy line of trees to the northeast of The Green looks like a boundary. The curving field boundary to the north of the chapel suggests ridge and furrow.
4The boundary was considerably re-drawn and greatly extended in 2012 using HER lidar layer.
