Full Description

Park House Farm, Park. Possible site of Medieval park, mentioned as Parkehous by Welbeck in the 13th century. (1) A park within the manor of Morton was claimed by Roger Deincourt in the Quo Warranto of 1330. It is not certain whether this park was within the bounds of what is now the parish of Morton, or the parish of Pilsley, or whether it encompassed both. Using map and place-name evidence, a credible suggestion for the park boundary encompasses both parishes. (3)
