Greenfield was a hamlet[3] 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".[4]

Greenfield Priory was a Cistercian nunnery founded before 1153 and suppressed in 1536.[5]
