And finally……..


To my knowledge, these stones near the iron bridge by the swimming pool have never been investigated….

Are they original in situ archaeology, or, as has been suggested, stones moved here from the investigation of 1989?



This ‘dip’ on the south bank of the brook has never apparently been investigated. It was at one time in use as part of the pitch and putt course, but photographs indicate it was there before the course was constructed. The Lidar image shows it appears to be part of an extensive group of works. So what was it originally?
