The possible extent of the Medieval settlement at Little Alne as identified on the 1886 Ordnance Survey map.

Notes about this historic site

1 The possible extent of the Medieval settlement, based on the first edition 6″ Ordnance Survey map of 1886, 37NE.
2 The 1886 map shows a hamlet with a few clear plots. Nothing helpful like a boundary hedge, but some lines of trees suggesting previous hedges. It is not listed in Domesday, and there is no ridge and furrow plotting of the parish.
3The area of probable medieval settlelment was very considerably enlarged to reflect denuded earthworks visible on a heavilly augmented image taken from the HER lidar layer.
