Full Description

2014: Four linears trends forming parallel and perpendicular mutually respecting enclosures were recorded during a geophysical survey. They predate the 1885 Ordnance Survey map and are on a slightly different alignment to the current boundary arrangement. Also recorded was an area indicative of burning, potentially an oven, hearth, furnace or kiln of either archaeological or modern origin (S1).

2017: Evaluation revealed a ditch which was a large and deep post-medieval field boundary close to the extant Red House Farm and was likely a boundary associated with it (S2).
