Full Description

The remains of a pit, possibly a quarry of medieval or post-medieval date, are visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork roughly 400 metres to the east of Ford Farm at circa SS 9219 4013. The pit is oval in plan and roughly 13 metres long, north to south. The earthwork is not marked on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map of 1889. However, it abuts a curvilinear field boundary of possible medieval or post-medieval origin, for which it may have been excavated. [1-3]
