By 1330 the Bassett family, who held Langwith Bassett, had two parks or great hunting grounds at Langwith. One of these was probably the area around Langwith Wood [see SMR 12328]. Roseland Wood with its small salient of rough pasture in the north-east sector is roughly the area of the Bassetts' second hunting park. It is possibly the hunting ground of the mid-13th century Dean of Lincoln. (1, 2)
Recent research has indicated that the second park was further to the north-east, lying on the east side of Upper Langwith [see SMR 29221], as shown by field names on William Senior's map of 1611. (3)
