Full Description

SK 0800 6690: Parkhouse Hill, Park: Place name evidence suggests the existence of a park in this area in the Medieval period. Reference is also made in various 15th century documents. (1,2). There is no physical evidence for a park (such as a pale) on this holding. The name 'Parkhouse' is referred to in documents of the Duchy of Lancaster from 1415 (1). It is unclear whether this is referring to the general area or more specifically Parkhouse Farm. (3).
