Greenfield[edit]

Greenfield was a hamlet[2] and chapelry, with a church dedicated to Saint Mary. According to a field investigator's report from 1964: "There are no surface indications of desertion - other than the Priory - nor is there local knowledge or tradition of a village and church".[3]

Greenfield Priory was a Cistercian nunnery founded prior to 1153 and suppressed in 1536.[4]
