|Type of record:||Monument|
This medieval woodland contains natural ponds and pingos (hollows formed during the last ice age). These features may have been adapted for use as a deer farm and as a rabbit warren. There is also a massive bank and ditch marking the parish boundary and other internal boundaries marked by banks and ditches.
