Park first documented in 1287.

Collings, T., 2015, Deer Parks (Personal Comment). SDV360119.

The south-eastern boundary of William Talbot's deer park can be identified from field names. The rest is inferred. Collings notes the poor correlation between parishes with documented deer parks and parishes with deer park field names.
