Old field and place  names

The fields around the village were individually named from earliest times. The names often derived from visible features or characteristics. The Great Wind  Furlong standing on the northern edge of the village overlooking the low ground of the meadows needs little explanation for instance. The names of the fields can be extracted from old maps, estate surveys and the tithe apportionment amongst many others. It will be an ongoing task to collect these names and publish them on this site. Those collected so far (March 2017), some going back to Saxon times, can be viewed on the link below.

We also reproduce a map with the names of some fields around the centre of the village from a fictional publication Ghosts in the Churchyard by M Pullin.  The names are believed to be accurate to at least the 18C.
