Monument record MDR12407 - Aldercar Park (site of), Aldercar and Langley Mill
Type and Period (1)
- PARK (Medieval - 1066 AD to 1335 AD)
- None recorded
In 1330 Richard de Grey, lord of Codnor, claimed four parks. These are named in 1335, one of them being 'Allerker'. There are a number of references in the 15th century - for example, in 1435 a certain John Clarke was appointed as keeper of the parks of Codnor and Aldercar at a salary of 2d per day. Saxton's map of 1577 shows Aldercar Park, and there is a further reference to the 'Parke of Aldercarr' in 1596. It was presumably disparked sometime after this. (1)
