Site visited in May 1978. Stippadon farm, earthworks. These earthworks were first noticed on the vertical aerial photographs in the field south-east of Stippadon farm centred at SX70956215. They were examined in Spring 1978 and considered to represent a settlement site or farm site. The field slopes moderately steeply to the east. At its upper or western end is a broad terrace across the slope and running downhill from this to the east two wide low banks enclosing an area approx 60 metres by 30 metres. Adjacent fields to the north and to the west (the other side of a green lane) have very faint ridges or terraces that may be man-made.
