Remains of Ridge and Furrow, Newton Regis

Description of this historic site

The remains of ridge and furrow indicate a system of Medieval open field agriculture. An archaeological evaluation revealed traces of ridge and furrow as well as a ditch, which was probably a field boundary. The remains were situated in the grounds of Newton Regis School.

Notes about this historic site

1 Archaeological evaluation identified traces of earthworks. Trial trenching revealed that these earthworks were probably the disturbed remains of ridge and furrow. An undated ditch was probably a field boundary on the edge of the village. The quality and preservation of the archaeological deposits are such that minimal archaeological information will be lost through development.
