Notes about this historic site

1 1891, while making a sunk fence near the Manor House, about 30 skeletons were excavated, and it is thought that many more remain. They lay about 1.2m below the surface and appear to be almost entirely male, though among them were the remains of a woman and child. No coffins or weapons were found. The heads had been lain on stones with flat stones to either side to stop the skulls being crushed. The bodies had been laid E-W.
