Well-marked house platforms to E and S of graveyard extension. Medieval pottery in E border of graveyard extension. Extension possibly cuts into platforms. Possible platforms visible in graveyard extension itself. Bank on E side of original churchyard, with corner at N end. Interior of church probably heavily disturbed by graves. Survival of below-floor deposits likely to be patchy. Any ground disturbance or further extension of graveyard to N, E or S to be avoided as this would affect well-preserved earthworks which are probably part of a deserted settlement.
