Reconstructed Map for 1300 - South West

This map shows how the south west part of Sherington might have looked c.1300. It is not an actual old map, but a reconstruction by Professor Chibnall originally published as Map 4 in his book "Sherington: Fiefs and Fields of a Buckinghamshire Village".

Larger scale maps of the other quadrants: North west, North east, South east.

In 1300, farming followed a 2-year cycle. The demesne area was therefore divided into two fields: the North Field and the East Field. The open fields were divided into the West Field and the South Field, the boundary being the Town Ditch, i.e. Water Lane. The division is shown on the Field map

Other dates: South west in 1580 - South west in 1796.
