Full description

Site of Bodney Warren Lodge shown on (S1).
Situated on the edge of the rabbit warren.
'Bodney Lodge' shown roofless on (S2).
The eastern boundary of the warren may have been the straight parish boundary between Bodney and Threxton (now Hilborough/Little Cressingham) to the northeast, called Old Bank on the same map; similarly at the north end of this where a track runs east to west on current mapping, a similar bank is mentioned.
