Notes about this historic site

1 There was a small brickyard here in the early 19th century, operated by the Leigh estate; however, the field had already been known as the Pitt Hill Field in the 18th century, suggesting earlier activity. Later in the 19th century a wood was planted on the site, which is still known as Brickyard Plantation.
