Notes about this historic site

1 Aerial photographs of Cosford show a village street, still with farmsteads and their gardens facing it. But Cosford has shrunk, and where the missing farmhouses were, can now be seen earthworks exactly similar to the farms in the air photographs of deserted Cestersover.
2 Scheduled as Warwickshire Monument No 136.
4 Recently earthworks over part of the NE of the site have been levelled with soil.
