Summary : The farmstead of Prescott is mentioned in the 1327 Lay Subsidy and is shown on the tithe map.
More information : SS 859393. Deserted farmstead of Prescott, indicated in the 1327 Lay
Subsidy (a) by the entry (under Cutcombe) of Adam de Prestecote. The
1840 tithe map (b) shows a farm area of Lower Prescott but does not
indicate a homestead. It probably lay below Higher Prescott, which
still survives, where there is a collection of enclosures on the
1:25000 OS map. Richard McDonnell reports that the site shows up well on air photographs. (1)
