Notes about this historic site

1 ‘There hath anciently been a chapel here, dedicated to S.Leonard, but now it is ruinous’.
2 The site of the chapel and deserted village was probably between Owlington and Marlborough Farms, but the site has attracted an army camp which makes further investigation impossible.
3 Notes on the Chapel exist in paragraph 2 in MOD literature ‘DM(BAD) Kineton Dossier Part One – Introduction’
