MMO562 - Post-medieval farmstead south of Triscombe Wood (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A review of available aerial photographs by McDonnell notes walls forming small enclosures and possible building remains south of Triscombe Wood. [1-3] The NGR cited by source 1 (SS 920 374) falls in an improved pasture field where no surface evidence could be found of any archaeological features. [4,5] The remains of several conjoined buildings are visible on vertical aerial photographs, immediately to the south of a modern hedge at SS 9207 3735. To the west at SS 9202 3734, is a large amorphous feature (approximately 20 metres by 25 metres). These features are considered likely to be the remains of a deserted post-medieval farmstead. [2,6] Not mentioned in Aston's list of deserted settlements.
