Abstract:
Aerial photographs taken by Chris Musson in 999 as part of the Millennium Air Survey of Herefordshire resulted in a field visit. The photographs were of a complex of earthworks that mark the presence of an ordered series of enclosures to the south of the A44 and west of the A480 at Lyonshall. Although when the images were sent through to the author of this report it was suggested that the earthworks formed part of a field system, it soon became evident that they represent traces of former settlement that link the church and castle with the present day village over half a kilometre away. A field visit focused on an area to the west of the Lyonshall-Hereford road (the A480). It immediately became apparent that the earthworks defined a series of plots arranged either side of a central routeway that, when projected northwards, met a former line of the A44 road, and southwards, aligned with the present course of the A480 road in and beyond the southern end of the modern settlement. On a subsequent occasion the opportunity was also taken to visit the southern part of the village and confirm the earlier and map-based observations. This is perhaps the largest of Herefordshire's shrunken/deserted medieval towns.
