Notes about this historic site

1 A trackway on the eastern side of Alveston Pasture is called Hryewg (ridgeway) in the bounds of an Alveston Charter and this is possibly of pre-Roman origin. It continues to the fords at Stratford, Tiddington and Hatton. The ridgeway was certainly in use in the Roman period.
