Notes about this historic site

1 Aerial photographs.
2 Earthworks of linear features and enclosures show on aerial photographs. The area is one of the few in the parish free of ridge and furrow and is called ‘The Common’ on the Tithe Map. It is possible that the earthworks represent an area of abandoned squatters’ settlement.
4 The features described here appear on the ground to be of natural origin. The ridge and furrow stops at the top of a relatively sharp slope.
5 Ridge and furrow plotted across this area in the transcript for the Parish.
