At the time of the tithe survey in the 1840s the site under investigation comprised three fields. The largest, Broad Close, was bounded to the west by two much narrower fields, which had been cut by the new turnpike road a few years earlier. The hedgebank which divided these two fields is still represented by a boundary alignment separating modern gardens, but has been reduced in size and truncated at the southern end. Other details: Figures 1, 4 and 5.
