Poss. Deserted Settlement 300m SE of Lower House Fm

Description of this historic site

The possible site of a deserted settlement of Medieval date which was located 300m south east of Lower House Farm.

Notes about this historic site

1 A Medieval church (now demolished) in an area without modern habitation may suggest a deserted Medieval village site. There are no indications of a site on the ground.
2 The fields around the church are under pasture and arable. There are no earthwork traces of a Medieval village in this area and no artefactual material of Medieval date was found during a brief survey of the site.
3 A light scatter of medieval pottery was recorded in the fields immediately adjacent to the church by fieldwalking. A slightly higher concentration was recorded in fields to the west (see MWA7212). It was tentatively suggested that these represent the extent of settlement, away from the church to the west.
