Notes about this historic site

1 Lee. Mentioned by Rous. A deed of 1435 has La Lee juxta Warwick and elsewhere it is recorded as in Bishops Tachbrook. Parts of Warwick Great Park are in this parish and this may represent an imparking enclosure.
2 Poor archaeology (C), period of desertion known, but documentary evidence inferior in quantity.
3 The probable area is around SP2863 where three ‘Leafield’ names occur on the OS 1:10560. There is no trace of a Deserted Medieval Village.
