Notes about this historic site

1 In the charter bounds of Long Itchington (1001) pass through a ‘High Oak in the middle of Wulluht Grove’. The Grove is a 200-acre wood shared between Long Itchington and Ufton. It is bisected by a massive bank going all around the Itchington part; this was built in two stages, the second perhaps connected with the making of a Medieval deer park.
