Settlement Sites

Village

Move the village until you think it is in

the correct location on the settlement maps

Example: Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire and A38

Valley Site

River floodplain

Raised river terrace

Some settlements are located in a valley to obtain water from the river. The

flat land (deposited silt) also provided fertile farmland. The flat land above

the floodplain might provide an excellent transport route way.

Gap Town

Example: Corfe, Isle of Purbeck

In places which provide an easy route through

a ridge or highland villages were set up to take

advantage of the trade and travellers. Highland can provide

good defensive sites.

Defence Site

Example: City of Durham

Defences on the

neck of meander

River meander (incised)

Early settlers needed to find places which were easily defended from attack. A good site was one which was surrounded by a river meander. The villagers would only have to build defences on one side at the neck of the meander.

Dry Point Site

Example: Isle Ely (Fens), Cambridgeshire

In areas of the country where the landscape flooded regularly people sought locations which were normally drier. This might be on the edge of the wetland area or on islands of higher land.

Bridging Point

Example: City of Oxford

Villages were sometimes built at places where it was easier to cross a valley

floodplain. These places acted as nodal points, an attraction for travellers

and traders.
