Over Prendwick Deserted Village (Alnham)

In a field to the north of the modern village of Prendwick a row of four rectangular enclosures can be seen. These may be part of the deserted medieval village of Nether Prendwick. It was last mentioned in documents in 1554, and must have disappeared sometime after this. The foundations are probably of small gardens, and would have been next to medieval houses. The long banks and ditches caused by medieval ploughing, known as ridge and furrow, can be seen nearby.
