This field is outside of Ettington. These areas had manor which was the main residence of the land owner. Ih the feudal system the land owner provided an area for the tenant, who would them pledge loyalty and service to the lord of the manor. Hides were an English unit of land that was figured to be able to support a household, approximately 120 acres. There are still about 3000 manor homes still in England.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
