Shrunken Medieval village with earthworks of landscaping and formal gardens associated with Claxby House. Almost all the surviving earthworks appear in their present form to be post Medieval and related to a substantial residence now represented by Claxby House, said to have been built 1809-10 replacing an earlier house. Earthworks of former properties are probably represented, and scatters of Medieval pottery and a bronze annular brooch have been found. Earthworks around Claxby House, St Marys Church and the Rectory including the so called moated feature known as Claxby Stew Ponds, are probably part of the setting of the post Medieval house; 16th or early 17th century formal gardens and 19th century landscaping and emparment. A mound, depicted as a barrow on early Ordnance Survey maps, is a prospect mound with a later ice house inserted.
