Name: Village earthworks, Wellsborough
Map Sheet: SK30SE
Grid Reference: Centred SK 363 024 (417m by 522m) (Approximate)
Summary: Village earthworks were noted on aerial photographs including building sites and enclosure ditches.
Description: "This is a small hilltop settlement with evidence of earthworks formerly existing around the Manor House. To the south is an area with earthwork evidence, enclosed on its south and east sides by a substantial ditch and including possible sites of buildings. North of the Hall another area, long since ploughed, has revealed evidence of old enclosures and two possible building sites. There are other possible areas of former village to the west and to the north-east, and an intervening area where any evidence has been destroyed by quarrying. Taken together these suggest the former existence of a substantial village."  <1>

Wellsborough - SK 365 024 - minor depopulation - poor archaeological evidence for earthworks - enclosure c.1400-1700.  <2>

Slight traces of earthworks at SK 365 024.  <3>

Nebulous earthworks in the indicated area demarcate the former extent of this much reduced village.  <4>

Name: Post-medieval watermill, Sheepy Mill, Sheepy Parva
Map Sheet: SK30SW
Grid Reference: Centred SK 329 014 (41m by 45m)
Summary: Large watermill complex, converted in later years to run on steam and electricity. Part of the mill building appears to survive, converted into flats c.1998.
Description: "Sheepy Mill is an imposing structure standing prominently on the Sheepy Magna to Sheepy Parva road. Probably the largest old mill building in Leicestershire, the buildings now lie largely empty. The mill, which took its water from the River Sence, had a breast-shot wheel of about 14 feet in diameter in the early C19th. This was then replaced by a water turbine and later by a steam engine. Early in the 1930s the power supply was changed to electricity. New buildings adjoining the old mill are now used for grinding animal foodstuff and the old mill buildings are planned to be demolished in the near future." <1>
Building survey work was carried out in 1998 of the one remaining mill building, prior to its conversion and the removal of render from the exterior of the building. It was a four storey brick structure probably dating to the late C18th/early C19th. The roof was supported by three substantial king post trusses, each truss having two pairs of braces between king post and principals. Few internal features survive. Bearings housed within the brickwork of the walls presumably carried line shafts driving subsidiary machinery. <2>

Name: Deserted medieval village of Weston/medieval grange, Moorbarns
Map Sheet: SK30SW
Grid Reference: Centred SK 301 024 (556m by 622m)
Summary: Former medieval village, granted to Merevale Abbey during the reign of Henry II and subsequently enclosed as a grange farm.
Description: "The site of the deserted village of Weston, described as having had five ploughlands, lying waste during the reign of King Edward the Confessor, but worth 70 shillings at the tmie of the Domesday Survey in 1086. There was a chapel here, and the place was excused from the tax of Peter Pence in 1344. It was granted in the reign of Henry II by Robert de Ferrariis to Merevale Abbey and subsequently enclosed as a grange farm.
"The estate of 308 acres, within a ring fence, was purchased by the Steeles from the Bradshaws around 1640. the site had been abandoned by the C19th, and the earthworks were levelled by ploughing in around 1960 but the plan can be reconstructed from RAF vertical photographs taken in 1948. These show several areas enclosed by substantial banks. These probably represent the livestock enclosures on the grange farm. Near the centre of the site are a number of probable building platforms. The first five of these could represent either parts of the medieval village or the grange farm. The last two sites are large and apparently isolated structures which could well be buildings from the grange.
"As at other grange sites, the original stream course has been abandoned, with the water instead led along ditches which enclose the site. There was a pond in the centre of the site and one near the northern corner. A little to the east was another hollow, originally either a quarry or a pond.
"Glebe terriers of 1679 record three open fields in Sheepy Magna: Little Field, Middle Field, and Little Sheepybrook Field." <1>
Nichols mentions the site of a church here c.1220 but the village had probably already gone by this time.

Name: Possible deserted medieval village, The Mythe
Map Sheet: SP39NW
Grid Reference: Centred SP 313 994 (424m by 366m)
Summary: An area with no ridge and furrow, suggesting that it might have been the site of a medieval settlement. Documents mention a chapel, watermill and capital messuage.
Description: "The Matriculus of 1220 makes reference to a chapel here, and in 1279 Sewall Tuchey possessed a capital messuage with a watermill and fishing rights. There is a further mention of the messuage in 1349. The Liberty of Mythe, comprising 200 acres, was purchased in 1615 by Thomas Baylie, Citizen and Vintner of London. The First Edition Ordnance Survey map of 1885 shows The Mythe Farm with a long narrow pond to the north of it which has been interpreted as a possible, although there is no definite evidence of this." <1>
Nichols (1811) quotes a number of medieval owners, suggesting that this was not a monastic grange.
Analysis of aerial photographs showed an area with no apparent ridge and furrow, flanked on the east side by a long, narrow pond, and to the north by earthwork banks. It is possible that this might have been the area of a village.

Name: Bosworth Field, medieval battlefield
Map Sheet: SP39NE
Grid Reference: Centred SP 38 98 (2549m by 2271m) (Estimated from sources)
Summary: On 22nd August 1485 the Royal army led by Richard III fought the smaller rebel army of Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond. Richard III was killed - the last English king to die in battle - and the Tudor dynasty began. A project to locate the battlefield ended in 2010 with the announcement that it had been found. A boar-shaped badge (see MLE20573) may mark the area where Richard fell.
Description: Various finds are recorded as being 'from the battlefield': A C17th halberd, standard pike, C16th sword handle, sword fragment, 2 horseshoes, horse bit, cannon balls, 3 silk fragments said to be from Richard III's banner, 2 flint lock guns, 2 spurs, a late medieval pottery costrel, C16th hunting spear and a flint flake. Only the costrel was thought likely to be contemporary with the battle. Other finds from this vicinity included a gold ring and a processional cross, more cannonballs, a possible steelyard weight, a sword and candlestick, 2 odd looking spearheads (possibly Bronze Age) and a silver penny of Henry VII.
The Battlefield Project found numerous medieval objects that appear to be related to the battle, including buckles, strap fittings, coins, buttons, pieces of weapons, horse harness fittings, horseshoes, rings, finger rings and badges. Most excitingly, over 30 pieces of round shot were recovered, ranging in size from 30mm to 94mm. This is the largest collection of round shot ever found in a medieval battlefield in Europe and can tell us a lot about early artillery. (The mapped area covers the main area of finds from battlefield research published 2011.)
There were several theories about the battle's location, but it seems the correct one is that of Peter Foss. This placed the battle on the low-lying ground next to the Fenn Lanes to the south and west of Ambion Hill.

Description: In 1995 the Hinckley Fieldwork Group located a Roman pottery scatter at SP 381 992 containing several mortarium rim fragments. The pottery represents an occupation site. The finds were donated to Leicestershire Museums Service in 2003. <1>
Metal detecting as part of the Bosworth Battlefield Survey in 2009/10 recorded 7 bow brooches, a crossbow brooch, a head stud brooch, a trumpet brooch, 2 bracelets, 24 coins, a furniture fitting, a pendant, a small quantity of pottery and 2 steelyard weights. The finds were spread across a large area with several possible concentrations. Some of them presumably relate to the site identified as a pottery scatter in 1995. (See also MLE20605, MLE20606.)

Name: CHURCH OF ALL SAINTS, MAIN STREET (WEST SIDE), SHEEPY MAGNA
Map Sheet: SK30SW
Grid Reference: Centred SK 326 013 (29m by 18m)
Summary: There was a church extant in Sheepy Magna in 1220. The building has a Perpendicular west tower, nave of 1788, north aisle and porch of 1859 when the nave windows were Gothicised.
Description: Listed building description:
Parish Church. C15 Tower and chancel, nave of 1789, but with windows and north aisle mid Victorian. Ashlar, Welsh slate roofs. West tower, nave with north aisle and chancel. The west tower is of 3 stages with angle buttresses capped by gargoyles and an embattled parapet. Giant arch to west filled in with paired lancets and wide 4 light Perpendicular style windows above, all Victorian, while at the foot is a low tomb recess containing a worn flatly carved effigy, probably of C14. Squared original window in the second stage and tall slender paired lights to bell chamber above. Plain chamfered north doorway in gabled porch, 2 light windows with quatrefoils to buttressed aisle. Small chancel with 3-light east window and small priest's door to south. Tall south nave wall and series of 4 mid-Victorian windows, paired lights with lean flowing tracery forming quatrefoils. Inside, north arcade of 4 bays, cylindrical shafts supporting double chamfered arches, in a stripped down interpretation of the Decorated style. Tower arch springs high, with screen and gallery in mid Victorian spikey woodwork. Wide roof with king post trusses to nave. Wide chancel arch springing from corbels, fittings all mid-Victorian, including the reredos behind the altar, a stone relief of the Last Supper. Font may however be medieval; octagonal, each facet has a blank shield in high relief. Stained glass; the south nave windows form a linked series; the eastern pair of the work of Burne Jones for Morris and Company, 1879. To the east Moses and David with smaller scenes below depicting the birth of Christ and the Adoration of the Magi, then Peter and Paul above the Miracle of the Fishes. Both windows have a backcloth of lavish foliage and fruit, oaks and roses etc. with stylised landscapes behind the narrative scenes, and angels in the quatrefoils. The 2 western windows are of 1897 and are by Kempe; he used a similar idiom, of principal figures above a narrative, here Daniel and Stephen with the raising of Lazarus, and Isaiah and John over the Baptism. Kempe's backgrounds are more abstract, though the little landscapes are fuller.
The church vault, containing members of the Fell family, was rediscovered during repair work. Also noted was a 'Celtic' style cross leaning against the church, which may predate it.
(Leicester Mercury 18/12/00)
In 2003 three sharpening grooves were noted in stones on the outside of the church wall. They may well be arrow sharpening marks from archery practice during the medieval period.

Name: GRESLEY FARMHOUSE, MAIN STREET (EAST SIDE), SHEEPY MAGNA
Map Sheet: SK30SW
Grid Reference: Centred SK 328 015 (17m by 13m)
Summary: Early C16th timber framed house, extended in the C17th, much altered in the C18th to give its present appearance. Elements of timber framing survive internally.
Description: Listed building description:
Farmhouse. Late C18 or early C19. Brick with plain tiled roof. 2 storeyed 2 unit plan with central door in gabled porch flanked by 3 light casement windows, that to the left with a cambered brick head. Plain eaves and cill bands. Stacks on rear gable and wing.

A building appraisal was carried out in 2013. The house appears to date back to the early C16th. It originated as a high status, timber-framed domestic building, which may have been owned by the Vincent family before passing through marriage to the Gresley family in 1757. The house has undergone several phases of remodelling over the centuries, resulting in the loss of much of the structural timbers which would otherwise provide evidence of its original plan form. During the C18th, the external walls were rebuilt in brick, perhaps in two phases, resulting in the relatively late external appearance of the house. Internally the fine moulded timbers of the ceiling structure within the eastern bays of the house indicate a late medieval/early post-medieval construction date. The earliest part of the house appears to be a two-bay element of C16th date aligned NW/SE on the eastern side of the house. This may originally have been built as a two-storey, timber-framed structure on a raised stone plinth. Of the original building only the ceiling structure and front room inglenook joist survive. At the SW end of the frontage bay, a large square-panelled, timber-framed queen-strut roof truss of possible C17th date separates this range from a third bay of building, which is at right angles to the rest of the house.  <1>

A watching brief in 2014 on an extenson recorded made ground and demolition rubble as well as domestic waste. There was evidence for a lean-to pre-dating the modern lean-to.  <2>

Map Sheet: SK30SW
Grid Reference: Centred SK 317 023 (44m by 31m)
Summary: A large barn, probably early C16th, possibly earlier, known as a tithe barn. It is over 140' long and is timber framed with brick infilling. It has a half-hipped roof. 6 bays are in their original state with splendid timbers.
Description: Listed building description:
Large medieval aisled barn. C14-C15. Timber-framed largely with C18-C19 brick infilling. Plain tiled roof. Paired doors with chamfered lintel ashlar surrounds in gable end. Three sets of wide double doors in long elevation. Seven bays. High brick plinth inside, square pillars on high stone bases carry spurs to the wall plate and are braced to a collar. From this, queen struts rise to a higher collar. Each bay has secondary truss with wall post supporting cambered truss rising to a higher collar. Common rafters are carried by four sets of purlins and there are wind braces in 1st, 3rd and 4th sections of the roof slope. No ridge piece. One complete partition to east, framed in close studded panels and with a tie beam as well as the collars. Main roof is carried in a continuous sweep over the aisles, and at each gable is hipped with gablet. Said "to have been the storehouse for the Leicestershire portion of the produce belonging to Merevale Abbey". White's Leicester, 1863

"The tithe barn, over 140ft long, is probably early C16. Timber-framed with brick infilling. Half-hipped roof. Six bays inside still in their original state, with splendid timbers. The main trusses have aisle posts, arch-braces from the wall posts to principals, and arch-braced collars. The intermediate ones have, not aisle posts, but sling-braces. Two rows of butt purlins over the main span, one row of through purlins over the aisles, all with wind-braces to the principals."  <1>

Tree-ring dating gave a felling date of 1506.

Description: Listed building description:
House. Core probably of C16, extended or extensively altered in the early C17, and partly refaced in brick in the C18. Now largely rough cast. Plain tiled roof. 2 storeyed, the plan consists of 2 parallel gables running north west south east, possibly of different construction dates: the entrance front is in the gable end, and has a central doorway flanked by 4 light tall wood mullioned and transomed windows on each floor. Embattled string course above the first floor windows. Both the gables have steeply coped parapets. Indications of cambered rail of timber framing above doorway. South west elevation also has parallel steeply coped gables, each with paired 4 light wood mullioned and transomed windows on each floor, and a string course above. Beyond, a further bay is a late C18 addition, with embattled parapet concealing a single slope roof, and giving false front with sash window cut by inner floor level. Rear elevation is of exposed brickwork, 4 light wood mullioned and transomed window to lower right, and to stair, the latter retaining its original glazing in leaded lights. Other windows here are casements of 2 and 3 lights. Various blocked or partly blocked openings also. Range of C19 outbuildings to south east with gabled frontispiece to coach entry now integral with house. Inside, the house has received a number of alterations and the 3 principal fireplaces appear to have been largely rebuilt. However an early C17 staircase survives, with splat balusters. 2 rooms, one on each floor, have fine moulded ceiling beams and joists; rolled and fluted mouldings which continue through the sharp chamfer stops. Upper line plaster floor dated 1605. Exposed timber framing inside reveals square panelled construction with straight arched bracing. Roof construction consists of 2 parallel ridges and 1 lateral ridge which runs south west north east, and with wind bracing in part.

Mill building (now part of dwelling) adjoins to left, of less height, also brick with plain tiled roof and with cambered heads to door and loading door above.
"This small mill, which lies just off the road from Sheepy Parva to Wellsborough, drew its water from the River Sence. It is sited about one and a half miles up river from the larger Sheepy Parva Mill.
The mill was in use until about 1940, after which time it degenerated quickly, it now being used as a store.
The wheel, which has gone, appeared to be of the under-shot type, about 14-15 feet in diameter. Several other items of mill machinery, however, are still there, including the large wooden sack hoist pulley in the still intact grain store. The mill had two pairs of grinding stones, one pair of which were French burr." <1>

Name: CHURCH OF ST. BOTOLPH, MAIN STREET (NORTH SIDE), SIBSON
Map Sheet: SK30SE
Grid Reference: Centred SK 354 009 (33m by 11m)
Summary: The church has a long chancel of c.1300, Y-tracery side windows and a Perpendicular south-west one. The rest of the church is apparently c.1726 rebuild, after the 'steeple' fell.
Description: Listed building description:
Church. Partly late C13 - early C14, but mostly at 1726, restored in 1872. Partly coursed and squared limestone, partly brick with stone dressings. Plain tiled roof. West tower entirely of 1726: 3 stages of ashlar with moulded cornice and parapet with urn finials at angles. West door in rusticated architrave, and round arched Y-traceried window in 2nd stage. Oculus in 3rd stage over door, and also in lower stage to north and south. Nave is brick with stone dressings. The 3 round headed windows were given geometric tracery in 1872. Parapet. Fabric of chancel is medieval, and the windows have intersecting tracery of C1300. One C15 window of 3 lights south, and a small priests door. Inside, wide nave with queen post roof with collar and bracing. Chancel arch is double chamfered with semi octagonal responds. Chancel screen of 1910, tripartite with ogee tracery, in simple, stripped down lines. In the chancel, blocked low-side window to south, and section with cylindrical shafts with ring moulding. Fittings: pews made up from C18 box pews in 1898. Stained glass in chancel SE and NE windows, depicts the Light of the World, the Good Shepherd and Saints Paul and Barnabus in medieval style. In the chancel, stone recumbent effigy of a man holding his heart in his hands, beneath a canopy and a brass, 1532, to John Moore, a priest, with huge outstretched hands and double curved scrolls of text reaching up to a small Christ figure, also with open arms, seated on a rainbow above.
During a visit to the church in 1995 a trench was noted cut along the east side of the building. Material from the spoil heap included one early medieval floor tile with patches of green glaze, one late medieval roof tile fragment and one undated tile with an animal print in it.

"Long chancel of c.1300. Y-tracery side windows and a Perp SW one. Huge E window with intersecting tracery. The rest rebuilt c.1726, after the 'steeple' fell, by Francis Smith of Warwick (his builder was a Thomas Moor). Brick nave with parapets and ashlar-faced W tower. The nave has round-arched windows which Alfred Bickerdike incongruously filled with a version of Geometrical tracery during his restoration in 1877. The tower has arched windows (including Y-tracery), an arched W doorway with rusticated surround of alternating-sized stones, a top parapet, and bulgy vase pinnacles. Chancel restoration by A.S. Dixon of Birmingham. He did the SCREEN in 1910. - STAINED GLASS. E 1882 and chancel SE 1875 by Hardman. - MONUMENTS. Effigy of a man holding his heart between his hands. Canopy above the head. C13. - Brass to John Moore d.1532. 3 ft figure. Two double-curved scrolls reach up to a small figure of Christ seated on a rainbow."  <1>

Evaluation in 2005 revealed a north-south aligned wall of random coursed limestone with mortar infill. This may be from a previous chancel or a buttress foundation, or alternatively it may date to the 20th century chancel restoration. A graveyard soil containing post-medieval pottery and tile and human bone was also recorded.  <2>

Name: TEMPLE MILL, GIBBET LANE (SOUTH SIDE), WELLSBOROUGH
Map Sheet: SK30SE
Grid Reference: Centred SK 356 034 (12m by 25m)
Summary: Late C18th watermill, possibly with earlier (timber-framed) origins, now a house. The mill was always used for grinding cereal crops. It appears to have fallen into disuse shortly after 1916. The wheel and machinery were dismantled soon after a purchase made just after the Second World War.
Description: Listed building description:
Mill and Mill house, now dwelling. Later C18. Brick with plain tiled roof and some stone dressings. 2 storeyed throughout, the Mill itself taking up the 2 right hand bays, the rest domestic, with central door and 6 pane window to its left, 2 smaller windows to the right. 15 pane sash and pair of 2 light casements above. Evidence of many former window or door openings in this elevation aand in the gable of the Mill itself, which has a stone oculus in the gable apex, and moulded stone eaves cornice to rear. Cornice of front elevation may have been similar, but it is now rendered over. Lower outbuilding to left is now integral with the dwelling. Few remains of machinery within.

The wheel appeared to be of the breast-shot type and was about 13' diameter. There was evidence of an earlier wheel which looked to have been of the under-shot type. The water course is now blocked and the mill pond filled in.  <1>

A Level 2 building survey was undertaken in 2014. Though ostensibly an C18th brick building, there is some evidence to suggest that the structure may originally have been timber-framed. The roof structure is supported by a pair of interrupted tie-beams (C17th/C18th in date) that appear to have been re-used from a box-framed building. The remains of a structural timber post can be seen on the western corner of the north-facing elevation. The original building was probably constructed on a simple linear plan. It seems that the walls may have been rebuilt shortly after 1730, following the purchase of the mill by John Hall (1699-1763). During the second half of the C18th a number of ancillary structures were built onto the house and farm buildings were built to the south of the house. Various blocked doors and windows were noted. During the course of the fieldwork a 1970s fireplace was removed from the former living kitchen, which revealed evidence for two earlier phases of the form of the fireplace, in addition to a substantial timber bresummer, which would have been part of the original inglenook.  <2>

Summary: Fieldwalking in 2005 recovered a concentration of early medieval pottery and late medieval pottery within the north-east edge of the mapped historic core. Further analysis of the pottery may aid interpretation of the abandonment of the village.
Description: A tentative interpretation is that the same type of activity continued on site until the 15th Century, if not later. The earliest enclosure date for Upton is 1513 (VCH Vol.2), which could indicate depopulation around the end of the 15th Century.
A few late Saxon/Saxo- Norman pieces such as Stamford ware are present, but some of other wares could be 10th-11th Century.

Summary: Fieldwalking in 2008-2011 recovered a large quantity of early medieval pottery and an Anglo-Saxon knife. Numerous cobbles were noted, suggesting a disturbed surface (at SK312022). The site could be an early grange site, perhaps later replaced by New House Grange. The focus was in churchyard field, though there were early pottery finds from a wider area.
Description: Aerial photo analysis by Malcolm Lockett suggests that there is an area without ridge and furrow, with several enclosures.
A map showing field names calls the field where the focus is 'Churchyard'.

Summary: The land here was probably levelled in the C18th/C19th to form gardens around Sheepy Hall. Presumably before that it was an area of settlement. Trial trenching in 2015 appeared to show it had field boundaries running across it in the C16th/C17th and some other undated linears on a different alignment were also recorded.
Description: "An additional area [of village earthworks] south of All Saints Church was probably levelled in the 18th or 19th century to create gardens around Sheepy Hall."  <1>

Trial trenching in 2015 recorded 2 undated linears, which appear to be on the same alignment as earthworks recorded by RF Hartley on the other side of the road. The trenching also recorded two later (C16th/C17th?) boundary ditches running roughly E/W. 1 sherd of medieval Chilvers Coton pottery and 7 sherds of post-medieval pottery were recovered and three fragments of animal bone. Environmental sampling from one of the later ditches (which was waterlogged) recorded hedgerow species like blackthorn, hawthorn, blackberry, dog-rose and elder.  <2>

Name: War Memorial, All Saint's Churchyard, Sheepy Magna
Map Sheet: SK30SW
Grid Reference: SK 3263 0134 (point)
Summary: World War I and II war memorial. A floriated latin cross on an octagonal shaft.
Description: In June 2015 it was proposed that the war memorial be listed.
It was listed in August 2015.
Listed building description:
HISTORY:
The memorial, in remembrance of the men of Sheepy Magna lost in the First World War, was unveiled by Mr JA Hoyes and dedicated on 7 November 1920 by the Rector, Rev WG Southwell. The Rector designed the memorial, which was made by James Bennett and Son of Birmingham.
A further inscription was added following the Second World War. By 2010 the memorial was in need of repairs, which were effected with a grant from War Memorials Trust. This included partly dismantling the memorial and rebuilding it with some new matching stone to replace damaged material.
DETAILS:
The memorial stands at the north-east edge of the churchyard of the Church of All Saints (Grade II*-listed), alongside the Main Road. Built of Hollington sandstone, it comprises a foliate cross with a heavily moulded foot, rising from a hexagonal tapered column. At the foot of the front face of the column is inscribed 1914/ 1918. The column stands on a hexagonal plinth. The plinth is raised on a two-stepped, hexagonal, base. All inscriptions are incised and painted.
A wreath is carved in low relief into the front face of the plinth, with one name recorded above and one below. The remaining First World War names are carved on the sides of the plinth to left and right. An inscription on the base of the plinth reads ERECTED/ BY THE/ PARISHIONERS.
A plaque commemorating those who fell in the Second World War rests at an angle on the steps, at the front of the memorial. This reads 1939 – 1945 (4 NAMES)/ DEATH IS SWALLOWED/ UP IN VICTORY. These names include Private Margaret Thompson of the ATS who died of pneumonia in 1946 and is buried in the neighbouring parish of Ratcliffe Culey.

Name: Early post-medieval rectory, south of the church, Sibson
Map Sheet: SK30SE
Grid Reference: Centred SK 3545 0086 (11m by 26m)
Summary: The original rectory was built in the early C17th. There is a 1793 illustration in Nichols. It appears to have been largely demolished c.1800.
Description: The Nichols illustration shows an early C17th range consisting of a three-bay building running north/south, with gablets and a chimney stack. To the south there was a two-bay structure with its gable end at the frontage. Further to the south, there was another range. Building survey work showed that part of the surviving 'Old Rectory' dates from the early C18th, and as such must have been standing to the south of the illustrated house. Most of the buildings appear to have been demolished c.1800 when the new rectory was constructed (see MLE21028).  <1>

Further survey was undertaken on the early fragment of the standing building, 'The Office', in 2011. This flat roofed single-storey building has a substantial sandstone and granite plinth/footing visible on its south-facing elevation. The bulk of the brickwork consists of handmade bricks, indicating a C17th date for its construction. Inside there was a fireplace, indicating that the building had originally been a domestic structure. Two large oak beams were recorded, apparently not in their original positions. Their size suggested they would have originally supported the weight of a second floor.
Report is in ADS Library: 10.5284/1022267 - http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1022267  <2>

A watching brief was carried out in 2011 following the demolition of the surviving C17th wing. Under the modern floor was a red brick floor (early/mid C19th in date), and under that footings that appear to be the remains of a bread oven likely to be contemporary with the demolished building.

Name: The Old Rectory, Sheepy Road, Sibson
Map Sheet: SK30SE
Grid Reference: Centred SK 3544 0084 (38m by 17m)
Summary: The building has early C18th origins, though a lot of work was undertaken in 1820-40 to make the south elevation the principal elevation and to unify the house.
Description: The rectory was built in the early C18th, though it does incorporate fragments of the earlier C17th rectory (see MLE21027). Brickwork suggests a date of 1720-30 and the staircase is characteristic of the period 1720-40. From 1820-40 various works were undertaken to make the southern elevation the principal elevation, and to unify the house.  <1>

Building survey work in 2011 concentrated on Building A: the C17th fragment 'The Office' (see MLE21027) and Building B: 'the Play Room, Larder & Kitchen'. It seemed that the latter building was built in the early years of the C20th, as a coach house or early garage. It joined Building A with the main house.

Summary: Fieldwork in 2003 and trial trenching adjacent in 2013 recorded medieval yard surfaces, pits, postholes, timber and stone buildings, ditches, etc. Pottery dated from the C12th-C14th.
Description: A watching brief and salvage excavation was carried out in 2003 on the street frontage. Yard surfaces, pits, postholes, possible wall footings and other structures and ditches were identified. The features included timber and stone buildings. Pottery dated predominantly from the 12th to 14th century.  <1>

Trial trenching in 2013 recorded various pits and ditches, presumably back of plot activities - property boundaries and refuse pits - as well as some evidence for quarry pits. 58 sherds of medieval pottery were recovered, dating generally from c.1100 to c.1350. The majority of the pottery consisted of Chilvers Coton wares.

Name: Sheepy Lodge Farm, Ratcliffe Lane, Sheepy Magna
Map Sheet: SK30SW
Grid Reference: Centred SK 3203 0005 (36m by 41m)
Summary: Brick built farmstead constructed between 1850 and 1870. Building recording in 2006 recorded two of the ranges and a sleeper-built structure. All of the buildings surveyed incorporated pieces of timber re-used from timber framed buildings.
Description: The buildings were surveyed in 2006. No farm buildings are shown on the 1847 Tithe Map; the farm was probably built between 1850 and 1870.
Barn A (to the west of the courtyard) is a 4-bay brick built barn (built from mid C19th bricks) with a clay tile roof. It unusually has 3 courses of damp course blue bricks. When built it had opposed full height doorways and the upper floor was only in the north bay (there are external steps to this). In the late C19th the barn was altered - the wagon doors were blocked, a new continuous floor was installed upstairs, new windows and doors were inserted. Some roof timbers were damaged by fire c.1948. Wall plate members were noted that had come from a timber framed building.
Barn B (the F-shaped building to the east of the courtyard) is also built from brick. It consists of stables, a loose box, milking parlour, mechanical workshop and garage. Part of the range has a roof re-used from a timber framed building, suggesting that this section was the first building on site. The other parts of the range were built in the last quarter of the C19th.
Building C is a three-bay building made from railways sleepers, with a corrugated roof. It has a wall post from a C17th/early C18th timber framed building. It was probably built between 1930 and 1950.  <1>

Summary: The memorial home was opened in 1921 as a memorial to printers who fell in WWI. It was later taken over by Pilgrim's Friend Society and closed in 2012. It was largely destroyed by fire in 2016.
Description: The buildings were explored in 2012. The buildings were very much in a 1920s style, brick with brick decorative horizontal bands and crittall windows. There are photographs of a grand wooden staircase with twisted balusters and wooden panelling, a hall with parquet flooring, a kitchen with glazed white bricks and an Aga, a balcony area with columns holding up the projecting roof, and various pieces of original leaded glazing are apparent.
