Possible headland, Chapel Green, Napton-on-the-Hill

Description of this historic site

A rectangular feature was noted on Google Earth satellite imagery; its location, between two substantial areas of ridge and furrow indicates that this represents an area of headland.

Notes about this historic site

12 Slight earthworks of a rectalinear feature, 120m north to south, were identified from LiDAR imagery by the AOC Assessment of Local Services Villages for Stratford-on-Avon District Council in 2012.
34 This feature, also apparent on modern aerial photography, consists of two parallel banks, which also appear to lie parallel to adjacent ridge and furrow. This suggests that this feature is associated with a ploughing headland of possible medieval date.
