SLENINGFORD

DESCRIPTION + /

A deserted medieval settlement and chapel are visible as earthworks and cropmarks on air photographs. A number of banks and ditches are visible as well as linear structures. Mentioned in Domesday it became a grange of Fountains Abbey and was damaged in 1363 by the Scots. The settlement was destroyed at an unknown date, possibly for use as grazing grounds. The traditional site of the chapel is visible on air photographs but only vague earthwork traces of the settlement remain.
