Foxton deserted medieval village (Harbottle)

Earthworks are all that remain of the medieval hamlet of Foxton, which is mentioned in a document written in 1546. The remains of three steadings and two garths can be seen. A bank separates these earthworks from ridge and furrow earthworks, which were once ploughed fields.
