Full Description

William Senior's map of 1611 shows an enclosure of approximately half an acre adjoining the southern boundary of what was at that time Langwith Park and extending onto Langwith Common. A small building is depicted at the southern edge of the enclosure. It is described on the map as 'Mellers intack', suggesting that it had been taken in from the common land. The building does not appear to have a chimney, so may have been a barn or animal shelter rather than a cottage. Fields immediately to the south-east of the park boundary were farmed by Meller (or Mellers). (1)
