Pillerton Priors is a relatively small parish and unlike many other villages in the region contains few notable structures and lacks a church which was destroyed in the 17th century. On closer inspection an interesting historical landscape is fossilised in the surrounding fields; earthworks, holloways and field systems hint at a long established settlement.
The links to the left can be used to find out more about a number of archaeological and historical features within the parish, this is by no means a complete story but documents the results of several years of archaeological research.
