Full Description

The remains of a post-medieval building on the north side of Broad Lane has been noted on aerial photographs. [1,2] At SS 93436 33760 is a small barn, constructed with timber and corrugated iron. The earthwork remains of an enclosure 20 by 15 metres are discernible in the rank vegetation. [3] The building and enclosure are not marked on the Exton Tithe Map of 1838 [4] or the Ordnance Survey 25 inch 1st Edition map of 1889. [5] The building and enclosure are depicted on the current large scale mapping of the area, suggesting that they are of 20th Century origin. [6] The features are also not shown on the 2nd Edition mapping. [7] The 2010 aerial photograph shows that the small barn mentioned above appears to be ruinous. [10]
