Notes about this historic site

1 Charter evidence suggests that a pagan cemetery existed just S of the parish boundary between Tredington and Shipston on Stour and between Stone Hill and a field called Shipston Hedge Furlong.
2 Between Stone Hill and the road as you walk towards the River Stour; at the point where you leave the ridge the cemetery should be found.
3 The map of the unaccompanied charter clause of Shipston on Stour has the pagan burial ground in a position further east closer to the Stour.
