Walk Wood, Stocks, Aldbury
Walk Wood, Stocks, Aldbury
Walk Wood adjoins Stocks House and 1884 large scale show it to be crossed by a network of footpaths, a number of which run between the house and the walled kitchen gardens.
Dury and Andrews map of 1766 LinkExternal link shows it as a plantation (perhaps an orchard) adjacent to Stocks House.
It would seem that the wood gets its name because it provided a quiet wooded area for the inhabitants of the house.
