Medieval Settlement Remains, North Ormsby



Reference Name MLI41146

Name:
Medieval Settlement Remains, North Ormsby

Summary:
Medieval settlement remains, North Ormsby.

Location:
NORTH ORMSBY, EAST LINDSEY, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
An extensive area of croft and toft running along both sides of a track. Possibly part of the medieval village of North Ormsby. {1}

Adjoining the site of the priory on the south-east is a further series of earthworks including medieval settlement remains. These earthworks extend over a distance of 500m on the valley's southern slope. These earthworks are considered to represent the remains of medieval village plots including dwellings and yards with drainage ditches and outbuildings. 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, lynchets and ridge and furrow. 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 being 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. 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. Not all the settlement and cultivation remains are included in the scheduled area. For a full description of the whole monument, see the revised scheduling document 22624. {2}{3}{4}{5}{6}

A redeposited sherd of medieval pottery was recovered in August 2003, during archaeological monitoring at 1 Church Lane Cottages, North Ormsby (PRN 41146a - TF 2885 9319). The sherd was a fragment from a late 13th to 14th century Toynton ware jug or jar. {7}{8}
