Notes about this historic site

1 Bloom records that when a new gravel pit was opened up in the first field leading to what had once been Nardey Bush ‘Saxon’ remains were found. Three badly decomposed skeletons were excavated by Wellstood.
2 Bloom lived at Wimpstone rectory. A gravel pit is marked on the OS 1924 edition of the 1:10560 map at the above grid reference and this may well be the find spot of the skeleton.
