Possible House Platform 100m W of Warwick Street

Description of this historic site

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.

Notes about this historic site

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.
