Whittington (Whittington)

This is the probable site of the deserted medieval village of Whittington, which was first recorded in the late 13th century. There are few 16th or 17th century records of the village, and a mid-18th century map shows only four buildings here. Now, only one farmhouse and two cottages survive. Fragments of earth banks and areas of stony ground suggest that most of the medieval village is beneath the present farm.
