Abstract:
This Archaeological Assessment was tasked to determine whether the proposed development on land adjacent to Cuckhorn Farm, Stoke Lacy (Herefordshire HR7 4HE) would impact upon a 'possible motte' as described in the Herefordshire Historic Environment Record. No documentary evidence has been found to positively indicate when the mound was constructed and by whom. Moreover, as the surviving remains of the mound and its associated earthworks would appear to have been significantly disturbed by modern cultivation activity and landscaping, it is difficult to reach a definitive conclusion regarding their likely date and function. However, based on an examination of documentary and cartographic records and the actual form of the earthwork (with reference to similar sites recorded locally and in the wider surrounding area), the balance of probability is that the earthwork represents an artificial mound or 'motte' with the possible remains of a sub-rectangular enclosure or 'bailey' lying immediately to the E of the mound and further rectangular earthworks to the N which may represent fishponds. The oval mound and its associated earthworks appear to represent the remains of a motte and bailey site of 12th century date. Documentary evidence suggests that the earthworks may well have been associated with a manorial site named 'le Halle' which is first recorded in the early 13th century.
