Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
Possible post-medieval earthworks are visible as banks and mounds. These are located downslope of a bank defined enclosure at the junction of Little Comfort Wood and Winsley Wood. Field investigators suggested a possible relationship between these features and a rectilinear earthwork enclosure located nearby (MEM15447). [1, 2] These earthworks are not visible on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map.
