Description

The monument consists of the remains of a medieval first floor hall. It comprises two storeyed building measuring about 6.1m by 4.5m, with walls 1.0m thick. It is referred to in 1715 as having been an almshouse at that time.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval construction techniques and settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. The building may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and its importance can further enhanced by their group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
