Possible Shrunken Medieval Settlement at Honiley

Description of this historic site

The possible site of a Medieval shrunken village. The village is known to have existed from documentary evidence. It was located to the east of the church at Honiley.

Notes about this historic site

1 In 1329 the village was not taxed, because of its smallness. In 1539 the living was so small that it was served from Warwick. The air photograph shows very little sign of building beyond the present extent, perhaps two or three more house sites.
2 Medium archaeology (B), excellent documentary evidence for former existence with period of desertion known (1*).
3 No trace of desertion.
