Summary : The deserted or shrunken Medieval settlement site of Castlett Farm remains as earthworks, which are partially visible on aerial photographs. The site comprises circa 14 house platforms and associated paddocks. The earthworks extend for 296m by 97m and are orientated roughly north-west / south-east, along the eastern side of a brook.

the field centred SP 089259. (2)

Centred at SP 089259 and covering an area about 300.0m NW-SE by
110.0m transversely is a DMV consisting of about 14 house
platforms and associated paddocks. The area is delineated by a
hollow way and a low (0.4m mean height) boundary bank in the
north-east and by the slope to a stream to the southwest. To the
south-east and northwest more recent usage of the land has
obliterated any further remains.

The scarps and banks vary in height from 0.2m to 2.4m.
