Summary : An extensive and multi-period field system and potentially associated settlement enclosures of possible later prehistoric date are visible as earthworks on Codsend Moors. The field boundaries are defined by massive spread rubble banks and lynchets 0.25m high and 2m wide. The remains are most clearly visible in four or five discrete sections across Codsend Moors, which have been recorded separately.
More information : For details see summary. (1-11)

An extensive multi-period field system and potentially associated settlement enclosures are visible as earthworks on Codsend Moors. The field boundaries are defined by massive spread rubble banks and lynchets 0.25m high and 2m wide.
Two phases of enclosure can be seen. The most widespread and probably ealiest is roughly co-axial in form, comprised of long narrow fields aligned loosely north-east to south-west, across the incline of the moor. The second field system is less extensive and its boundaries are more sinuous in plan, overlying the first. The remains are most clearly visible in four or five discrete sections across Codsend Moor and Hoar Moors, which have been recorded separately. (12)
