Location :

Summary : Earthwork evidence for field boundaries and possible strip-fields of probable medieval date is visible on aerial photographs to the north-east of Steart, with which it is probably associated. The remains of two curvilinear lynchets are visible as earthwork banks at the confluence of the River Avill and a tributary to the east. Two additional banks are visible as very low and narrower earthworks between the wider boundaries, and may indicate subdivision into strip fields.
