Site of a medieval wood called Clopton Grove.

Notes about this historic site

1 Cloptongrove appeared in deeds dated to c.1279-80 as an area which included messuages, land, meadows and pastures but reference in 1604 to a grove called Clopton Grove suggests that the thirteenth century property was indeed named after a wood which was extant and which it adjoined or from which it had been taken by assarting. Fifteenth century manorial acounts show that Cloptongrove adjoined Snitterfield, thus establishing the grove’s approximate location. The grove may have become the modern Park Wood.
