Gatehouse Comments

Field Head (Called Warksfield Head on modern map is at NY843784), no ruin is marked on map to the north and the location given is the 1km square NY8479. Gatehouse suspects a small square in a field corner at NY844786 may be the site of this ruin but can not be sure. Further information welcome.
