Notes about this historic site

1 The most prominent village boundary yet noted is at Little Packington, one of the few small deserted nucleated settlements within the Arden Forest. Here, a small rectangular enclosure including the church and space for a few croft sites is delimited by a bank rising about four or five feet above an outer ditch, beyond which is a limited area of ridge and furrow.
