Full Description

NG80NW 8 833 075.

At Li, on and close to the site of the present house, there are the remains of what has probably been a small township, together with its outbuildings, ancillary structures, and cultivation. Not all the features may be contemporary and it is likely that the nucleus of the township is a site of some chronological depth. Other features, including possibly the remains of further buildings, may be obscured due to the redevelopment and planting which has taken place at Li. The evidence mapped is sub-numbered as follows.
