Assessment of ridge and furrow to the east of Grimston Bar. The areas of ridge and furrow represent the remains of a cultivation system that are likely to relate to the medieval historic settlement of Murton which is located to the east of the A64 trunk road corridor. The integrity of these earthworks has been compromised in part by later agricultural activities and the enclosure of the landscape in the 18th and 19th centuries; but also by the construction of the A64 which has effectively severed the remains from their connection with historic Murton to the east. The remains as they survive therefore do not represent a complete and well preserved example of a medieval field system.
