Full description

Adjoining the site of the Gilbertine Priory, on the south-east, is a further series of earthworks including medieval and post-medieval settlement remains. The stream in the north-eastern part of the monument was diverted in post-medieval times to run approximately 40m to the north; the course of the earlier stream survives as a linear depression. Between the old and new courses of the stream are furhter earthworks, including those of post-medieval buildings. In the south-eastern part of the monument, rising up the slope at right angles from the hollow way, is a series of linear boundaries including banks, ditches and lynchets. To the south-west of the settlement remains they form a group of four linear enclosures. This group of earthworks represents part of a field system which was in use in the medieval period and later, partly overlain by the extension of the village to the west; it is in turn, considered to incorporate elements of an earlier field system, perhaps of prehistoric date, which included lynchets. Not all the field system remains are included in the scheduling. Excluded from the scheduling are the farm buildings and yard at Abbey Farm, and all fences; the ground beneath these features is, however, included. The ground beneath the main farmyard area and the buildings which enclose it, covering an area roughly 50m square, is excluded to a depth of 0.5m although the ground below this depth is included. For a full description of the whole monument, see revised scheduling document 22624. {1}{2}{3}{4}{5}
