1 Aerial photographs.
2 Aerial photographs and site visit revealed a field with distinctive evidence of Medieval settlement. At the N end of the field are good remains of ridge and furrow, projecting into the field in a triangular shape. At the south end, the land seems to indicate the remains of ?house platforms. The field was certainly a part of the Medieval field-system of Stretton, and may have been part of the Medieval village of Stretton.
3 Many thistles and nettles in the field. Probably not ploughed for a long time.
