Full Description

Linear field banks are clearly visible on vertical air photographs in fields to the north and east of Leigh Farm, centred on SS 9630 3376. These feature appear to unlie the post-medieval field gutters described in record MMO676 and may therefore be of earlier, possibly medieval date. [1]
