Full Description

Post Medieval conjoined, embanked enclosures, situated between Helebridge Farm and Jury Hill road, and centred at SS 9320 2780, are visible on aerial photographs. They are not marked on the 1891 OS map but do seem to relate to the road and the farm suggesting they are post-medieval. At least five enclosures, measuring between 10m by 5m and 30m by 30m, may be the remains of garden plots, or possible building platforms. The features are indistinct on the photographs and there are almost certainly more features too indistinct to plot. They have been ploughed level. [1-3]
