Burghley

Hob Uid: 348033
Location :
City of Peterborough
St. Martin's Without
Grid Ref : TF0400006000
Summary : Settlement mentioned in Domesday Book and deserted between circa 1350-1450. It is thought to be located within the vicinity of Burghley House in Burghley Park. No traces have been identified on the ground or from aerial photographs.
More information : The Medieval village at Burghley, deserted between
circa 1350 and 1450, has not yet been sited but may be under
Burghley House (TF 049061). Documentary sources (authorities 2 &
3) seem to indicate a manor and tenants here, rather than a
village; Domesday mentions three servants, seven villeins and a
cottager, (authority 6). Dugdale (authority 4) mentions a
chapel at Burghley, extant in 1289 (see also TF 00 NW 38).

Nothing visible around Burghley House on available air photographs
but there is a disturbed area at TF 035059 surrounded on the
north east and south by ridge and furrow. (1-6)

Nothing was seen on the ground at TF 035059 to justify an
interpretation of desertion. The supposition that the village now
lies under Burghley House would seem to be as likely as any. (7)

An examination of all available air photographs revealed no evidence
of the Medieval village refered to by the previous authorities. (8)
