Full description

Griffiths, D. M., 1986, Ford Barn deserted medieval settlement (Worksheet). SDV155369.

Building A is on a slightly different alignment to the others and appears to be in a separate enclosure. This building is probably a longhouse, although the detail of the position of the doors and cross-passage etc are not determinable, except for traces of what appears to be a drain in the centre of the floor at the lower end.

Ordnance Survey, 2010, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV344030.
