Location and general description

Attached to the lost village of Hazeleford, Oxon. The Oxford Historic Environment Record (PRN 6) notes that it was shown on 1882 edition 1:2500 OS map.1086 and gives its location as grid ref SP 4047 3902, near Broughton, Oxon. (SP4039 at www.geograph.org.uk) The site therefore lies about 0.5 Km SSW of Broughton Grounds Farm and about 0.5 Km  upstream of Fulling Mill Farm.


Buildings
