Possible House Platform 100m W of Warwick Street
The possible site of a house of unknown date. An earthwork of a possible house platform is visible. A map of 1775 names the field here as 'The Homestead', although no house is marked on it. The site is situated 200m south west of the church, Southam.
1 The field rises up from the stream up to Abbey Green and the Stoneythorpe Hotel. The rise is broken by a large horizontal platform, about 10m wide and 50m long. This platform is certainly artificial, but it is not possible to say whether it is a cultivation terrace, or a building. It looks more like the latter. On a map of 1775 the field is named ‘The Homestead’; although there is no building marked, this may indicate that the earthwork is the site of a house.
