Notes about this historic site

1 Wedgnock park pale survives as an earthwork running NW-SE just to the north of the single arch bridge crossing the Cuttle Brook (WA 7438) and forms part of a scheduled ancient monument (SAM 21582). This part of the pale forms the eastern boundary to Wedgnock Park; the park itself was originally established at least as early as the 13th century.
