Penterry plague burial pit
The information board outside Penterry church has this to say : "The church field was purchased in 1996 and is owned and managed on trust for the benefit of St Mary's. It is the site of the medieval village of Penterry, the population of which is believed to have been decimated by plague in the mid 14th century. A burial pit has been identified in a hazel grove on the edge of the field and aerial photographs have shown the outlines of buildings". The hazel grove mentioned is shown here, to the right of the seat. ST5198 : St Mary's Church, Penterry
