Notes about this historic site

1 In 1969 a concentration of Medieval pottery was found in the corner of a field between St Nicholas Church and the modern village. A trench, about 1m by 7m was excavated. The topsoil contained a lot of sandy fabric cooking pot, mostly unglazed, of C12 – early C13 date. In the subsoil part of a curving gully with a fill similar to the topsoil was found. An area 2m by 5m was opened up uncovering more of the gully. Its fill contained pottery similar to that from the topsoil. No other structures were found.
