HER Number:MDV19980
Name:SETTLEMENT in the Parish of Cornwood

Summary

Vis=2/8/1979 (os) two small enclosures situated in clitter on a slight south west slope. To the southwest and north-west centred at sx62766179 in an area largely stripped of stone, there are traces of a field system covering c 10 hectares. Short lynchets and field banks, changes of slope and occasional lines of spaced single stones indicate fields of fairly rectangular plan. It is likely that there were other huts, and that the area was a large open settlement.
