Site of Possible Medieval Lodge 600m S of Court Farm House, Fulbrook.
Documentary evidence suggests that this may be the site of a Medieval lodge. It is situated on land just north west of The Forest Hermitage.
1 At the bottom of the field adjoining that containing the site of Fulbrook Castle and near Hampton Wood are stone foundations supposed to be the site of the Gate House or Lodge called Bergaveny.
2 In about 1412 Joan, Lady Bergavenny, built a little Lodge or piece of building in the park called Bergeiney.
3 The Gate House was possibly at Court Farm (PRN 848), so this may be the site of the Lodge.
4 The Lodge was still standing in the latter part of the reign of Henry VIII.
5 This Lodge still appears to have been standing in Leyland’s time.
6 The field was under crop and could not be examined.
