Possible Site of Upper Radbourn Deserted Settlement
The possible site of a Medieval deserted settlement at Upper Radbourn. The site lies in the area of Radbourn Manor Farm.
1 There was an Upper Radbourn parish, the site of this hamlet probably being now ‘Manor Farm’. I have not been able to confirm this.
2 No visible evidence of desertion at the indicated site.
3 Summary of documentary evidence. Near the pool is a small partly-ditched triangular enclosure. This appears on the 1849 Tithe Award Map but not on earlier maps. There are blocks of roughly-dressed stone in this plantation which indicate the presence of a lost building, but it is too heavily overgrown for any features to be visible.
