Kennel field at Ditsworthy Warren farmstead is enclosed by a wall with a ditch on the interior suggesting the purpose was to contain rather than exclude animals. Three structures are set into the wall and as the 19th century Tithe Apportionment refers to it as 'Kennel Court' the function was to provide shelter for the warreners dogs.
