Notes about this historic site

1 A deserted village nucleus can be identified on the E bank of the Arrow, set at the core of an open field still operating in the late 17th century. A regular pattern of tofts existed and many of the houses were still occupied in the mid 18th century. An additional settlement complex lay at the N end of the village, in the 17th – 18th century comprising a farm, a mill and several cottages. This had been abandoned by the mid 19th century.
