Notes about this historic site

1 Alredfordbrugge c1427. Used to be a ford here which led down road running into Cubbington Lane. River is changing its course and running more to the S. Information from Mr Drew, Kenilworth.
2 No reference is given for the name Alredfordbrugge.
3 Correspondance and copy of illustration from 4 concerning the “ancient river crossing which linked the village of Ashow to the now defunct village of Bericote”. The letter is mainly concerned with the local objections to blocking off of the ancient trackway.
4 Illustration appears to show fording point directly adjacent to church.
