Abstract:
In response to a Countryside Stewardship Application a site visit was made to a small farm in the Dulas valley. Many of the fields on the southern side of the valley are steeply sloping and too small for modern machinery. As a consequence they have remained under permanent Pasture and / or orchard. During the site visit a series of levelled platforms were noted. These comprised three circular depressions approximately 3m in diameter and cut into the natural hillslope. Recent mole activity within these depressions revealed a substantial quantity of charcoal and burned clay associated with these structures. Further examples of this monument type were identified during subsequent visits to the site. These types of structure have been identified as post-medieval field kilns and whilst once very common, now seldom survive as extant earthworks due to increased pressure on agricultural land. Evidence for the remains of a fulling mill were also noted in the bank of the Dulas Brook nearby. All features were recorded photographically and by plane table survey. A survey of the farmhouse was carried out prior to building works. The house is listed as a 18th century farmhouse. However, elements survive within the timber frame to suggest earlier origins. The northern bay contains the remains of a cruck frame, cut off at first floor height, whilst the central room comprises a 16th or early 17th century reception room with richly chamfered, heavy timbering and with a very fine fireplace. At first floor level evidence for a dormer type gable survives and is thought to be contemporary with the house frame.
