Full Description

Stanway Green is shown on the County Series at 1:2500 Scale Epoch 1 Historic Map (1874-1887), located on the southern outskirts of the settlement of Stanway. The green is an irregularly shaped site, with an area of 1.946ha. There are a number of buildings built along the edge of the green, including the Grade II listed early C19 Cherrytree Cottage (LB Number: 1224932). The modern green is a similar shape and size as the Epoch 1 map, however, there has been an increase in the number of buildings around its edge. It has also shrunk slightly to an area of 1.656ha. In terms of archaeology, the most important one is Gryme's Dyke, which runs through the green. This makes part of the green a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Two Roman brass coins were also found in the centre of the green. The entire green is part of an area of high archaeological potential. <1>
