Notes about this historic site

1 The possible extent of the Post Medieval settlement, based on the OS first edition 6″ map of 1887, 44NE.
2 The ridge and furrow plotting for the parish of Stratford-upon-Avon.
3 The first edition map shows a small densely built hamlet with neat straight- line back gardens.The ridge and furrow plotting doesn’t show any survival in the immediate area. It seems likely to date from the post medieval period, although the VCH has some references to a mill and to the costs of rents for a virgate in the medieval period.
4 A lease of AD 985 concerns 5 ‘mansae’ (hides)at Tiddington.
