Notes about this historic site

1 Wolverton has two entries in the Domesday Book, implying the possibility of two early settlement foci. Earthwork remains indicate the existence of a possible shrunken Medieval settlement. Remains include banks and ditches in the field to the south of Meadow Farm, and possible hollow ways and platforms in other parts of the present settlement. Some of the remains are quite slight.
