Estates and Areas

The research group have identified a number of different estates and areas in the parish and tracked the development or the history of these from documents and maps.

Some are areas which were once part of the parish but are now outside the parish such as Huntingdrop, and others have been partly brought into the parish, such as the extra-parochial area of Crutch. The Forest of Feckenham is associated with the historical land use of that part of the parish.
