Notes about this historic site

1 The DMV recorded by W Ford seems to be centred on the vicarage at Honington.
2 An ancient pathway can be traced from Honington Bridge to the parish church and there is evidence of ground disturbance to the south and west of the vicarage garden and some dense clumps of nettles.
3 The vicarage garden has been landscaped in more recent times and surface features have been obscured. I S Leadam refers to Honington in recording the acreage imparked by Robert Gibbs in the 16th century, but he adds that Honington was not entered in the chancery returns of 1517.
4 Honington does not appear in Rous’s list of deserted villages in Warwickshire.
