Archaeological field survey of the earthworks around Manor Farm, Shingay was commissioned by Mr Bath of Sydney Bath Farms Limited following the granting of planning permission for the conversion of the site to a Golf course.

The earthworks survey has shown that several major components of the medieval landscape associated with the Knights Templar/Hospitallers preceptory are still in existence. These include evidence for the control of water within the area feeding water meadows, mills and moats; three furlongs of mediaeval ridge and furrow with associated hedge baulks (now largely marked by trees) and contemporary settlement in the form of moated sites. These areas have been recommended for preservation as an integrated part of an historical economic and social landscape.
